Location: Cape Town, South Africa
Description: This classic cocktail is made from the fruit of the African Amarula tree. Elephants and other animals have been known to over-indulge and get intoxicated in the wilds. It’s usually served with slices of dried mango for the “ears”.
Top spots: The Planet Bar at the colonial Mount Nelson Hotel and the Bascule Bar at the Cape Grace Hotel with its spectacular views of Table Mountain.
If you're planning on being in any of these cities in the near future—anyone up for a quick vacay?—make note of some of these drinks and places. Personally, I'm looking forward to trying a Singapore Sling one night while watching the Grand Prix of Singapore (a man can dream, can't he?).
