rum, honey, herbs and depending on who's making it - wine, liquors, vodka ... or whatever floats their boat.

Such wonderfully named items as – Anamú (bark of the tree), Bohuco (a type of creeper), Brasil, Canelilla (Cinammon based ingredient), Caro, Marabeli, Osua, various 'twig type ingredients' like Palo Indio, Palo de Maguey and Pega Palo (to 'give it some stick'! – Pega Palo literally means a 'hitting stick'), plus some other exotics.

Someone told me turtle shell was ground up and added. It's quite delicious and always seems like a good idea after a few beverages.

Yes, it is a drink. My husband and I have both tried it...an acquired taste! It is considered the Dominican viagara! If you try to bring it back into the US, it may be confiscated...because of the natural ingredients...like twigs or bark.

Mamajuana is a great after dinner drink that goes really well with an espresso or a cappaccino ----but watch they are potent!!!
