Dominicans like their libations, both alcoholic and not. "Mama Jane", anyone?

Dominican Drinks

Experiencing Dominican culture one sip at a time.

Another great way of getting to know Dominican culture is in liquid form. Apart from myriad non-alcoholic libations such as tropical fruit juices and shakes, Dominicans like their cerveza (beer), with Presidente being one of the most ubiquitous brands you’ll see. There’s also an herbal concoction called mamajuana ("Mama Jane"), made from rum, red wine, honey, herbs, and – we kid you not – tree bark, considered good for the digestion and sundry ailments. But speaking of rum, this is of course what occupies the place of honour, with brands like Brugal, Barceló, and Bermúdez enjoying an international reputation. A bottle of it bought in situ makes a perfect gift for any drinker in your life (and of course yourself!).
