Nice almond flavor within the Ruby Booty, with a very cherry focused drink. Both a dark cherry juice from our cherry juice (Luxardo), plus the distilled cherry flavor of the Luxardo Maraschino. This is definitely a sweeter drink, I couldn't toss too many of these back but Jennifer said she could definitely drink a few of these without any issues.

Keep Calm and Drink On. Today we make the Rum Crusta Swizzle which is the first time we've really been excited about Maraschino Liqueur. Light, flavorful and covered with a neat combination of flavors that creates a new flavor profile, not calling out any single spirit or flavor as the highlight of the game.

There is plenty of room for interpretation of the mamajuana recipe because, frankly, I've yet to find a true single recipe that defines the island-based product. For the price, at or around USD $14.99, it's not a huge risk on taste so I encourage you to give it a try and let us know what you think.
