After a hard week, sometimes you just want to lay back, relax and get comfy. This Friday, take it easy with an African Lullaby cocktail.

African Lullaby CocktailAfrica is the world’s second largest and second most populated content full of just over a billion beautiful people and amazing natural scenic landscapes.  Home to the Marula Tree, which grows wild in the Savannah and attracts many animals (including elephants),this tree produces delicious fruits of which the pulp is used in making the famous Amarula Cream liqueur, a flagship liqueur of South Africa and key ingredient to the African Lullaby cocktail.

How to make your own African Lullaby:

-2 oz Amarula Cream Liqueur
-1/2 oz Coconut milk
-4 oz Milk
-A dash of nutmeg

In a blender combine all ingredients with crushed ice. Pour into a nutmeg rimmed cocktail glass and serve. If you like, garnish with a cherry.
