Dom Pedro is a divine, drinking dessert with an ice-cream base which can be served as not only a drink, but for dessert as well.

You will find a Dom Pedro on just about any South-African restaurant’s dessert menu. It is however a little different from restaurant to restaurant in that some use Amarula Liqueur and others would use Kahlua Liqueur.
I prefer Amarula as I think it is the most wonderful, exotic liqueur around !
It has been said that the Marula fruit (the overripe fruits) falls from the trees in the wild. The elephants then eat it and well, let’s just say they’re a happy bunch after a Marula treat !
This is one of the easiest desserts which you can drink, although you might get a light bout of brain-freeze should you drink too quickly.
So thick and frothy ! One really just want to sip away after a hearty meal !
