Welcome to the place to find some ideas to help you get started on creating your own custom variety of MACHUCA drink.

The classic MACHUCA is of course, straight MACHUCA over ice, in a nice serving glass; but we welcome any mixology that you want to show us. You can send us your recipe at [email protected]

If you provide us with a winning recipe and some pictures of your drink, we will credit you in perpetuity in the big book of MACHUCA recipes (and perhaps some MACHUCA gear), you can also tag us via social media @/# MACHUCAWORLD


• real fresh strawberry crushed iced juice
• coconut ice on top
• garnish with mint

Very easy to build and perfect for pool or beach-side.  Stir 2oz of MACHUCA slowly into the strawberry crushed iced juice, leave about 10-20% of the top portion of glass available for a coconut ice topping, finished with a sprig of fresh mint and accessory of choice.

The Dominican

• 2 oz Machuca
• 4 oz Red Rocks Cola (dominican cola)
• 1 lime

Classic.  A Dominican twist on a tradition.  In a Collins glass, squeeze in the lime, then drop in half the spent lime shell.  Muddle the oils from the rind into the juice.  Add ice.  Add MACHUCA. Pour in Red Rocks Cola, garnish to suit.

The Grove (UPTOWN 2)

• 1.5 oz MACHUCA
• 2 oz grapefruit juice
• 1/2 oz cranberry juice

Same as The UPTOWN, just different ingredients.

Brooklyn Bomber

• 1 oz MACHUCA
• Fresh wild cherries
• 2.5 oz Coke Zero
• 0.5 - 0.5 oz fine whiskey (to taste)

The SupaStar

• Freshly harvested Passionfruit
• Freshly squeezed Mango Juice
• Freshly poured fine Champagne
• Freshly cut Starfruit to garnish
• MACHUCA on top

The Drop

• 1oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 3/4oz simple syrup
• 1 egg white (small or medium egg)

Place the MACHUCA, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white in a cocktail shaker. Do not add ice yet.  Dry shake the cocktail. Seal the shaker and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. (This is referred to as a “dry shake.” It’s good for incorporating the egg white before adding ice to the shaker.)  Shake again with ice. Add ice, seal again, and shake for 7 to 10 seconds more to chill.  Strain the cocktail. Fit a Hawthorne strainer over the top of the shaker and pour the cocktail through a fine-mesh strainer into a coupe glass. This is referred to as a “double strain” and this method is used to catch any ice shards or pulp from the fresh-squeezed lemon juice.

Freshly Minted

• 2 oz MACHUCA
• 1/4 oz simple syrup
• mint leaves
• crushed ice

Mix this fresh drink with a fresh press to start a beautiful thing.  Mix MACHUCA with simple syrup and mint in a Julep glass or old fashioned glass.  Gently muddle the ingredients. Fill halfway with crushed ice, stirring constantly until the cup frosts, continue filling and stirring until the entire cup is frosted.   Mound the top with more crushed ice and garnish with a sprig of mint in the center.
