Mamajuana recipe at home

We bought both a premixed bottle at the shopping mall and a package of "bark" at airport. We were told at Secrets' resort that they make theirs with rum, red wine and a touch of honey. Does anyone know the exact recipe?

-white or dark rum?

-what type of red wine?

-what is exact amount of each?

after having my pack of dried Mamjuana taken from me at the airport by the US agriculture dept. I googled it online and bought the dried mix. It came with a large bottle to mix it in and several recipes. The one I use is the equal parts of dark rum, red wine and honey. It has always turned out pretty good

Randyk , we brought home a mixed bottle and a bag of bark. So we have 2 options of how to mix it. The way we were told was more like 50/40/10: dark rum/red wine/honey. We stayed at secrets and that's what we were told. Your version maybe good but we could taste wine more in the mucho shots we had :) I didn't experience any issues where I needed to go to the dr. I guess I needed to drink more (or maybe less?)

I was told to soak the bark in white rum or gin for a week before adding the mixture.

I had read that somewhere, that you should do a preliminary soak in all rum first then pour it out. I can't imagine wasting all that rum :(

Me either. I'm not pouring away any wine or rum. Can't you drink it?
