About the event

Alcoholados are traditional medicines made in Puerto Rico for spiritual and physical healing. They are made with the leaves of the Malagueta (Pimenta racemosa) tree, also known as Bay Rum in other Caribbean nations, and can be made with many other plants for their aromatic, protective and cleansing properties. In this workshop we will discuss the history behind the Malagueta tree and how it’s been used for thousands of years, the benefits of alcoholados and together we will make our own alcoholados to take home.

Every ticket comes with a pre roll 🍃
