    All of these posts going around about using tequila as a wedding favor and having shots instead of a toast really have me inspired.

    My family and my friends are a hard partying sort of group. Needless to say, there will be a lot of drunken frivolity at our wedding. I love the idea of liquor as a favor and/or doing shots as our toast. But, I am stumped on what kind of alcohol is DR inspired?

    Any ideas?

          Brugal rum was the one our bartender told us was the best. Here's it on wikipedia Brugal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                Thank you Danielle!!! I am looking at it right now... Knew that DR had to have some kind of alcoholic 'claim to fame'!

                  Oh know what you should look up Mamajuana. Its considered dominican viagra. It's some kind of herbs that you soak in rum and then take shots of it. It was the big drink when we were down there. i think some sites have recipes for it. goodluck

                    OOOO... great idea! I will ask my WC if they have it at the resort and if it would be possible to arrange some kind of 'mana juana shot' toast!
                    Thank you so much Danielle!! You are great!

                      let us know how you make out. they should definately have it at the resort, they had it at every bar at mine and i'm sure yours will too. It was all over the island
