South Africa's master playwright Athol Fugard returns to Berkeley Rep with the moving drama Coming Home, which begins previews this Friday on the Thrust Stage.

Our resident mixologists always like to create specialty drinks to complement each show. For Coming Home, they've outdone themselves by crafting two unique cocktails made with some traditional South African ingredients. Patrons will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Fugard's drama and enjoy an authentic taste of his homeland.

Here are the Coming Home cocktails:

  • The Amarula Cream
    Amarula Cream, a South African liqueur made from African Marula tree fruit (a favorite elephant snack), is artfully blended with Crème de Cacao, Amaretto, and milk.
  • The Van der Hum
    Made in the Cape Winelands of South Africa, Van der Hum is a unique tangerine-flavored liqueur that mixes beautifully with Korbel brandy, orange juice, and cranberry juice.

Coming Home opens January 20 and continues through February 28. For information visit our website or call the box office at 510 647-2949.

The Van Der Hum will definitley be added to my list of drinks. The orange juice would provide a nice sweetness to the rum and bitter cranberry juice.

I had hoped they would have made a non-alcoholic drink. The show would be so much more appreciated if I was sober.
