Christmas approaches again and here in the UK people will buy bottles of exotic beverage they won't touch at other times of the year. However, everyone forgets that Amarula Cream was Leonard Cohen's very favourite drink. Imagine the scene: Leonard's friend: "What would you like to drink Leonard?" C...
