A look at Africa

George Restrepo

Many people probably know Africa through TV reports with extensive plains full of wild animals, nature reserves, fraught with social problems and mostly unoccupied. But through the World Cup we have been able to realize that beyond the black continent we can find unequaled wealth in the warmth of its people, who had the chance to be great hosts for such an anticipated event, only seen every four years.

Even though during a month we had our eyes on it, many worldwide bars have been looking at it before through two emblematic fruits of the African continent used in their cocktails: watermelon and marula.

The first one is easy to find in almost every market, and not necessarily talking about the imported product. The originally African watermelon has grown without much trouble throughout the Iberian Peninsula, in Asia as well and in many countries of Central and South America. Its composition of 90% water makes the watermelon a refreshing ingredient for many cocktails.

On the other hand we have the marula, a tree that grows wild in Africa and which we only know through a cream called Amarula, a liqueur made of the round yellow fruit and flavor characteristic of this tree. The Amarula was rated best liquor in the world according to the International Wine and Spirit Competition Awards of 2007 and ranks second on liquor sales after Bailey’s Cream.

And with all this, a look at Africa with two recipes:
