As written on its label, Kalahari Thirstland Liqueur made from bulbs, plants and herbs of South Africa. The Awe inspiring Kalahari dessert stretches across the borders of Namibia, Bostwana and South Africa. Small patches of vegetation bring life to endless expenses of time sand, which in coulours from vivid orange-reds to burnt amber, brown ocre and smooky pink.
I was trying the liqueur at my friend’s house, while he invited me to have dinner. Before giving me Kalahari, he was offering Amarulla, it is a liqueur made from Amarulla fruit, which is elephant’s fave. But he has better story about Amarulla, when a Amarulla tree fruity, all animal from the jungle come to the tree and started to have a party, all animall will get drunk, because Amarulla already fermented when its ripe, a monkey will walk and take a bite of Amarulla fruit then it will fall down drunk, none animal will kill others as they were busy with alcohol sensation. Anyway, that night was not my lucky night, I can’t try it because it already going bad, the cream already crystalize. Then he suddenly remember about Kalahari. My first impression about Kalahari was,”wow the botol is so unique” seriously, you can imagine Aladin magical lamp. Its call Calabashes, ‘Gqa te Tsi’ in Swahilli. We have very simple way to enjoy the drink, crushed with lot ice rocks… and first sip was very spicy. Oh, come on, spicy liqueur? I am not trying to hyper-description, really, like you taste Chinesse medicine for cough! But then enjoy it melt in your mounth you will taste the sensation and after five minutes, I can say that I like it! Our meal that night was Indian meal, frankly speaking, it was bit to much excotic flavour in my mouth. This liqueur would be better serve with a bit ‘plain’ foor flavour, I think. Yeah, I am an amateur for liqueur tasting but who care? I like it! 😀
So, while Aimee confirmed to take Kamikaze for her 2nd glasses and me; I found the new one, Kalahari.
