Happy #tbt wannabes!!!! Almost the weekend and it’s the 4th of July!!!!!! Woooohoooo!
So decided I needed to do a fun take on throwback thursday! This is from last year when we were in Heaven (ok so not quite but super close) ( We were at the Royalton Punta Cana Resort down in the DR) Let me tell you that is the most gorgeous places I have ever been too! That is also including the people. I called them Caribbean gods & goddesses (I don’t go the girl way ( but f you do that’s cool too) am comfortable enough with myself saying they were gorgeous)
Soooooo, anyways to the mamajuana. When we got down there and to one of the bars we asked what is your local drink that is what everyone drinks down here. The bartender said mamajuana, we were both like excuse me?!?!?!?! The bartender was like no no no not marijuana MAMAJUANA! We were like shooooo, cause ain’t nobody got time for that! He said you can either do it as a shot or a drink but that most people do it as a shot. I was game! I was like BRING IT ON PUNTA CANA!!!! He pulls out this big bottle that is straight up full of what looks like twigs and grass and shit, and I started to question myself like WTF he’s gonna give me a twig/grass shot….. It’s a red color, and he starts to explain that Mamajuana is a bunch of different herbs (which I looked up and could not pronounce like any of them I tried and failed), honey, red WINE (score!!!!!), and Brugal rum (brugal rum is their rum they make down there and it is seriously the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth, ok so maybe not the best thing but pretty close 😉 !) SIDENOTE: If any of you wannabes go to the Dominican let us know so we can ask you to pick us up some Brugal!
The bartender pours me a shot and I’m like can I get something else to drink just in case ( yes I am still a wussy and need a chaser to a shot) Finally I am ready to throwback this mamajuana and I’m so nervous and excited!
I do the shot and I thought I was gonna die, but it was fantastic at the same time (side note I do believe I gained a few chest hairs when I did this shot also). It burned oh so bad, but it 5 minutes I was wooooooo bring on another one! ( may or may not have gotten very strongly tipsy off 1 shot)
Heather said after the one shot my eyes were bloodshot.
Soooooo question for you all!!!!
Where is your favorite vacation spot and what is your favorite drink that you can only get while on vacation?!?!?!?! Let us know!!!!! We would love to hear from you all! Have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend! Don’t drink and drive!
