    lynnski / LA's Note:

    In the Cape Verde Islands, this cordial might be made with cane brandy made with sugar cane grown on the island, but white rum is more available. If you can find Brazilian cachaca, that works well. Ethiopian coffee beans are especially good for this cordial. Note: the liqueur requires a 3 week aging process before consumption. Recipe adapted from: the Africa Cookbook, Tastes of a Continent, by Jessica B. Harris
