1 oz. of mavi tree bark
1 oz. of fresh ginger
1 whole cinnamon
12 1/2 cup of water
2 1/2 cups of sugar
2 1/2 cups of dark brown sugar
Boil the Mavi tree bark, the ginger, and the whole cinnamon in 1 ½ cups of water in a cooking pot for 5 minutes.
After the 5 minutes, remove the pot from stove and with a strainer, filter the liquid and let it cool totally.(Like Totally Baby!!)
Mix 12 cups of water, the sugar and the brown sugar in a big deep bowl.
Add the Mavi liquid and mix well until it starts to foam.
Poor the Mavi into glass bottles and seal with a plug made out of cloth. Do not plug it too tight or use your underwear to plug it sealed. The fermentation will create pressure just like a pressure cooker effect!
Put the Mavi bottles in the Rican sun for about 4-6 hours or until you see that it is fermented.
When this is done, place the bottles in the refrigerator so they can get very very cold.
The colder the Mavi, the better it tastes. Try making some limbers with the liquid, it’s yummy.
