It’s one of the most highly coveted souvenirs from the Dominican Republic. And no wonder: Mamajuana is, after rum, the most popular drink in the country.
Which is completely understandable if we take into consideration that the locals claim the drink has an entire range of positive effects, including notably increased sexual passion and potency. Although scientists have failed to back this claim, it is true that the drink was originally prepared by the Taino Indians as a kind of herbal tea to cure the flu.
Over the years that tea evolved into this highly unusual drink that visitors can buy bottled or finish preparing themselves once they return home.
Roots and herbs are at the base of this “magic potion”, but it can also contain fruit and honey as well as seafood. Rum (usually dark and aged) and red wine is added, the mixture is left to macerate and the result is our Mamajuana.
Needless to say, both its flavor and its medicinal properties depend on the ingredients and person who creates the drink.
Each sip in the end is a true “Mamajuana experience” that guests can also enjoy at the Catalonia Hotels in the Caribbean.
Of course, we recommend that you try it first to feel its full effect and then mix it with different juices and soft drinks for a less intense cocktail.
