APHRODISIAC
Mamajuana is seen and advertised as an aphrodisiac or afrodisiac, with many people describe it as a type of natural "liquid Viagra". Women have also claimed that mamajuana enhances their sexual desire.
Although mamajuana became famous for their supposed ability to stimulate the libido, 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.
Whatever the truth about mamajuana's efficacy there have been a number of recent, and reputable scientific studies that have confirmed the potentially positive healthful effects of some of the typical herbal and botanical ingredients that may be used in the brewing of the liquor. Examples could be said to include resveratrol, in red wine, thought to enhance longevity, and the use of cinnamon in blood sugar control for diabetes sufferers. Studies into some of the rarer botanical herbs, roots and barks used in making mamajuana are still ongoing.

THE NAME "MAMAJUANA"
Originally the name of the drink was Dama Juana (Lady Jane), which refers to a large bottle with a short narrow neck. The word is thought to be derived from the French Dame Jeanne a term which is also still used to describe this bottle. In the Spanish-speaking countries, Dame Jeanne was transformed into Dama Juana and later, into Mama Juana (mother Jane). For this reason it is easy to see why there are many different variations of recipes to make Mamajuana, since the name refers to the container/bottle originally used to prepare and store the maceration, rather than to the finished product itself.

WHAT IS MAMAJUANA?
Mamajuana is a drink exclusively from the Dominican Republic that is made by adding rum, red wine, and honey to a combination of twigs, bark, leaves and herbs. The taste is a unique combination of woody and herbal flavors, it is sweet to semi-sweet and normally the color is a deep brown/red. People normally drink it straight or on the rocks allthough recently more and more people use mamajuana in the preparation of cocktails. The alcoholic content of the original mamajuana is 30 percent (60 proof) which makes it more drinkable to people who find hard liquors like rum and whisky too strong. Also the fact that mamajuana is semi sweet makes it smoother to drink. On the other hand mamajuana still has sufficient alcohol to be considered a hard liquor.

PREPARATION OF MAMAJUANA
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 and 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.


PRESENTATIONS
Nowadays there are two presentations in which mamajuana is sold. The first is a bottle, normally recycled, full with a combination of leaves and twigs and sometimes even shellfish and private parts of a sea turtle. The ingredients are sold both cured as well as uncured. You still need to add rum and honey and wait for the maceration process before being able to drink it. The second presentation in which mamajuana is sold is the ready-to-drink mamajuana;  mamajuana Kalembu .

MAMAJUANA INGREDIENTS
Mamajuana, in general,  is made with a combination of a variety of plants native to the Dominican Republic, such as Gouania lupuloides (chewstick), Caesalpinia echinata (brazilwood), Serjania Polyphylla (basketwood), Cryptorhiza Haitiensis (canelilla leaf), Anamú (Petiveria alliacea), Anis Estrellado (Star Anise), Bohuco Pega Palo (Cissus verticillata), Bojuco Caro (Princess Vine), Marabeli, Clavo Dulce (Whole Clove), Maguey (Agave spp.) leaves,  Timacle (Chiococca alba)
