Yes, you may very well be asked to try a shot of mamajuana...a local drink made from a certain bark, spices, rum, honey and wine (depending on the recipe). In our experience, it tasted like a toasted raisin/cinnamon bread - we liked it, anyway :) We had some from different batches on our resort during cooking demos, and it was always available at the bars.

As far as being an aphrodisiac, or natural enhancer even, we'll leave that up to you to discover (wink, wink).

Enjoy!!! :)

rose m ........as sara states it is a local drink not a drug.....it's a redish colour and made from rum, honey, and herbs .....personally i'm not a big fan of the taste but find a shot of it is great if i have a bit of a dry / sore throat :-) lol

I'd take the offer of a natural plant over a nasty tasting spirit any day ;)

MAMAjuana, aka Dominican Viagra.

We really liked the mamajuana at Excellence. We bought some to make at home, we'll see if it tastes as good when we make it :-)
