The Springbokkie ("little Springbok" in the Afrikaans language), composed of creme de menthe (or substitutes[1]) and Amarula, is a cocktail shooter that is popular in South Africa. The drink derives its name from the team jersey colours (green and gold) of the South Africa national rugby union team, which is known as "The Springboks." The ratio of Amarula to creme de menthe can vary substantially between recipes.[2][3][4]
