I found something on U-tube. Place bark in a glass bottle and fill with gin for 30 days...dump out gin in 30 day (this is to take the bitterness away from the bark) You can all Sangria, tequila, amaretto and or honey.......This is the ANTICIPATION part ....ready in 6 months...REALLY :(

Any other recipes or thoughts.

white rum, red wine and honey.

Gin???

i would not damage the taste/flavour with Gin or anything else than Rum, and i sure wouldn't dump it afterwards, lol.

yes, the barks are bitter on the first preparation, leave the first mix in for 2-3 weeks, then run your 22drinking22 mixture. let it in several days befor you start drinking, take a sip and decide if its strong enough to be used or if you wnat to give it a longer time before you invite friends for a Mamajuana evening. it tastes different every few days, as it changes it's strength/flavor all the time the longer the same liquid is over the barks.

in reality you can run countless of experiemnts with the arks as for what you fill in the bottle/how you mix it etc etc, there is no rule set in stone.

but sure DR Mamajuana does not contain any Gin nor Sangria nor Tequila.

a sip of amareto is added by some, yes.

happy mixing

There are different ways of making Mamajuana.

We use for the first week cheap white rum to wash the roots and remove the bitter taste

Through away this rum and fill it with brown rum with honey and some wine

Once you finish the mamajuana you can re-use the roots just refill with rum, honey and wine again.

It can last for years

The main thing is not to leave the bottle empty for long as otherwise the roots will rot

yes Bigbite,

great hint, as it is essential to let it last for years, don't let the bottle stand dry for extended times.
