To celebrate the Amarula Oasis event taking place on 22-25 July in Edinburgh’s St Andrew Square, Amarula Cream has teamed up with award winning mixologist Ben Reed to create exclusive Amarula Cream cocktails especially for the occasion.
Bringing a slice of the African continent to the Scottish capital, the Amarula Oasis will be the perfect environment to escape the hustle and bustle of summer in the city where guests can indulge in an Amarula Cream cocktail and enjoy performances from African storytellers, musicians, poets and an Afro beat DJ.
Sit back and sip an Amarula Cream African Bramble cocktail, a tropical blend of smooth Amarula Cream, fresh blackberries and creamy probiotic drinking yogurt - perfect for a spot of decadence.
For fresh summer fruit lovers, Ben Reed has also created the Amarula Cream Kiwi cocktail. This refreshing cocktail is ideal to sip on a warm summer evening, and is made from a combination of smooth Amarula Cream, fresh kiwi fruit and just a touch of sugar.
Why not re-create these simple yet indulgent Amarula Cream cocktails at home?
