How to make better tasting Alcohol, Dominican style

For the most part, we know anything ending in “juana” has to be good for you. The Dominican Republic is famous for their Mamajuana – a combination of barks and herbs that are used with rum, red wine and honey. This recipe, adds a whole new world to your alcohol collection; rum and wine have never tasted as potent and addictive after you’ve tried it.

 

Mamajuana is seen and advertised as an aphrodisiac, or as many put it a “liquid Viagra”. Women have claimed that it enhances sexual desire. The drink was originally regarded as a cure-all that was an effective treatment for many ailments from a common cold, or influenza, right through to far more serious conditions. This reputation may have derived from traditional remedies handed down through the ages from as far back as the times when the ancient tribes inhabited the island.

 

Below are the first few steps in making your Mamajuana drink using a cheap Merlot Red Wine. This is for tasters that don’t want to drink with rum and prefer bitterness to their wine.

 

The first step in the process is eliminating the bitterness of the ingredients; this process is referred to as “curing” and consists in soaking the ingredients in red wine for about a week. After that the wine is thrown away. Then the rum and honey are added.

Many people include additional ingredients such as cinnamon cloves, vanilla, star anise or ginger. After a few days the mixture acquires the Mamajuana taste and is ready to be consumed. This process can be repeated several times until the ingredients loose their flavor.

 It’s hard to find Dominican in Toronto, generally you’ll have to know a Dominican or visit the Dominican yourself.
