Kapama Karula’s Café Amarint

Jan 14, 20210 comments

If you are looking for a bit of an extra kick in your hot beverage with a bit more of an exotic flair, Kapama shares a delightful and traditional twist to your standard milo or hot chocolate.

Kapama Karula is famous for creating interesting and unique beverages for its diverse guests  visiting the Lodge from all around the world. A big part of travelling to a faraway destination is enjoying the culture and an array of local cuisines, drinks and traditions. This can even include a “Winter Warmer” drink like Café Amarint.

Kapama Karula’s Executive chef Mahki Maki shares his secret.

Enjoy a “Springbokkie” shooter with your Milo and Espresso. Springbokkie is a traditional South Africa shooter. The Springbokkie is made from peppermint liqueur and Amarula Cream. Amarula is a true South African success story. It is made from the fruit of the Marula trees, which only grows along Africa’s subequatorial plains and there is only one time of the year when female trees bear fruit. This exotic fruit has four times more vitamin C than the average orange and there is evidence that Marula fruit can be traced as far back at the 10 000 BC.

The reason why this shooter is called the Sprinkgbokkie is that the Green and “Gold” represent the colours of the South African National Rugby Team: The Sprinkboks.

Here it is – Hope you enjoy!
