A co-worker is going back to Poland for Xmas and is looking for a recommendation of a ‘cream’ style liqueur to take back with her. She said that she has taken “Irish Cream” before, so she wants to take something different this time, but wants something in the same style. She mentioned that the guy in the liquor store mentioned one that is flavored by a South American fruit, but she can’t remember the name in English – she thinks it starts with an ‘A’ – does this ring a bell with anyone?

Personally, Bailey’s is the only thing I can think of, but I think she wants something a little more exotic. Thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks,

Cat

Do you mean South AFRICA? If so, that would be amarula cream liqueur...

The liqueur store on 181st and Burnside has a whole creamy section and it's not behind a counter so you can pick up bottles and read the labels. Picked up a cookies and cream type last year that was nice. Don't recall the brand. The have a lot of smaller bottles so you can try a little before going for a whole big bottle.

She probably already knows this, but I feel the need to mention it anyway since I've flown recently. She won't be able to bring the bottle in her carry-on, but I managed to bring two bottles of wine home from NY in my checked luggage, of course, not without a lot of anxiety.

Thanks guys!

Jill - that's the one! My co-worker kept saying that she thought the name was arugula, so I really didn't know what she was talking about, so thanks for solving the mystery.

Pam - great suggestion. I might just check that out myself, as I like the idea of being able to get the smaller bottles.

katezOr - I'm reminder her. My guess is she probably knows, but then again...

I appreciate the help,

Cat
