This Mother’s Day, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is hopping behind the bar. He whipped up a special recipe, dubbed the Mana Mamarita, just for the mothers in his life. (Dwayne has three daughters, FYI!) You can make one for your own for mom, or hey, just for yourself, too.
The Rock shared his recipe exclusively with Women’s Health. His easy-peasy cocktail has only four ingredients and is totally customizable. Here’s all you need to make your own:
The Rock’s Mana Mamarita (1 serving)
- 2 oz. Teremana Small Batch Tequila Blanco
- 1 oz. Lime Juice
- ¼ – ½ oz. Agave Nectar (to taste)
- A handful of your Mama’s favorite ingredients
Directions: Muddle Mama’s favorite ingredients (follow The Rock’s lead and go for muddled raspberries and blackberries, or cucumber and jalapenos) in a shaker with Teremana, lime juice, and agave nectar. Shake with ice and strain into a glass over fresh ice. Garnish with more of Mama’s favorites.
Lots of love went into this cocktail recipe—and the tequila, too. Dwayne and his manager and business partner Dany Garcia and industry vets Jenna Fagnan and Ken Austin co-founded Teremana, which is crafted in a small town in the Jalisco Highland mountains of Mexico.
The tequila-making process is meticulous at Distileria Teremana de Agave. The jimadores (agave farmers) harvest fully mature naturally sweet agave, then slow roast them in small traditional brick ovens, and distill in handmade copper pot stills.
If that sounds like hard work, it is. But the bright flavorful tequila result is well worth it according to Dwayne. “After years of hard work, this is truly a dream come true,” Dwayne writes on the Teremana website.
