Adult milkshakes. Sweet cocktails. We’re having fun with Four Cousins Cream Liqueurs, which are showing off a brand new look, but still have the same delish taste. Strawberry Fields – rich and summery, all strawberries and cream, and Marula Dream – proudly African, with tastes of the indigenous Marula tree … both are perfect to sip alone, or added to coffee, poured over ice-cream or used in a grown-up milkshake. Less than R100 a bottle from your local bottlestore or online at fourcousins.co.za.
A delicately floral cocktail combining dry gin with fresh strawberry and litchi flavours, and the caramel notes of brown sugar.
You’ll need – 35ml Four Cousins Strawberry Liqueur; 30ml gin; one teaspoon sugar; 25ml lemon juice; fresh litchis and edible to garnish.
To make – Add all ingredients to a shaker and fill with cubed ice. Shake until combined and double strain into a chilled glass. Thread litchis on a skewer and decorate with edible flowers.
A decadent dessert-like cocktail combining marula with white chocolate & dark rum, topped with orange whipped cream & dark chocolate.
You’ll need – 25ml Four Cousins Marula Liqueur; 15ml dark rum; 15ml white Creme de Cacao; 5ml cacao nibs or rich cocoa powder; 15ml cream; 5 dashes orange bitters; chocolate syrup.
To make – First make the orange whipped cream by combining the cream and orange bitters, whipping until stiff. Glaze the inside of your glass with lines of chocolate syrup. Add all the other ingredients (except the orange cream and caco nibs) to a shaker filled with cubed ice. Shake until combined and then double strain into a chilled glass. Top with the orange whipped cream and sprinkle with cocao bibs.
