Mamajuana originated from Dominican Republic since the 1200's (before it was called Dominican Republic). The way it is prepared:
1. Curing the Drink: involves marinating certain selected herbs found in Dominican Republic with honey and wine (any kind of wine) for a week (leaving it for more helps the herbs taste better over time). 2. Set Up Drink: From here you either pour out that previous mixture (or drink it if you can handle it). You may then put in more honey and then fill it with rum or Dominican rum (Brugal if you have) is preferred.
Going with a 750 ml bottle (but can go with any size):
6 oz of Mamajuana Don Ramon herbs in 750 bottle
Any bottle of red wine
