    Default Mamajuana Recipe

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if you could share your Mamajuana recipes? I brought back from DR a 1.75 ltr bottle of Mamajuana, it's already been soaked in rum and wine for a week, I dumped it out and cleaned again with wine, Noe I am ready to make the final product and I need your help.

    I have been told to use 20 ounces of honey, 750 wine and 750 rum. I think that will make it to wine like?

    Thoughts and thank you.

    Canuck

    I've experimented with several 'recipes'. This is the perfect blend for me. I start with this ratio, then adjust as it ages...

    2 fingers red wine
    1 finger honey
    fill the rest with dark rum

    Flip bottle several times every few days for the first few weeks.

    Has a slight sweetness but doesn't overpower the spiciness of the herbs.

    When Papi makes it in el campo it's always just Rum and Honey, no wine available. Two key ingredients. The Red Wine doesn't give me the same flavor as just a lot of Rum and a good portion of honey. I prefer it with dark Barceló. Others prefer it with the Brugal.

    Thank you for the reply. The ration below will work for a 1.75 for bottle correct?

    Yes...it will work with any size bottle. Err on the side of too little honey and wine....wait a few days, after turning the bottle (upside down) a few times, and try it...add a little more honey for sweetness and/or a little more wine for smoothness. Keep in mind though the first couple of batches will still be a little harsh...it starts smoothing out after 3 or 4 batches...

    My personal stash is comprised of Barcelo Gran Anejo, 1 small honey (4-5 ounces), Sangria wine

    Although I have tasted an excellent mamajuana made with Barcelo Gran Anejo and dark brown sugar. The 'palitos' were already well seasoned with god know what though.

    Steve, after a few shots of the stuff you can't taste anything anyway. Go heavy on the honey to make it go down smooth.
