Legendary entertainer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson founded Teremana Tequila and it’s magical, y’all. We review both the Blanco and the Reposado.

Teremana Tequila

Teremana Tequila Review

The Teremana Blanco has a clean, sweet aroma of pure agave and a smooth, citrusy flavor. The Teremana Reposado also definitely did not disappoint, with smooth oakiness and rich, bold flavor. If Dwayne Johnson was a tequila, we feel like this is what he’d taste like. You know what we mean. Don’t make it weird.

One could be forgiven for having low expectations for a celebrity-brand liquor. But, like everything else he does, The Rock put his all into Teremana and it really shows. We definitely recommend picking up a bottle.

Mango Mana Cocktail

In honor of his efforts, we made the MangoMANA: a bright, rich, spicy-sweet cocktail worthy of Dwayne Johnson’s tasty contribution to the world of tequila. Fire up your copy of Moana and enjoy! You do own Moana, right?

Black Russian Cocktail
  • 1½ ounce Teremana Blanco
  • ¾ ounce Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur: a rich, smoky sweet Mexican liqueur made from ancho peppers.
  • ½ ounce Agave: a sweet syrup or nectar available at most grocery stores.
  • ½ oz Lime juice: Pro tip: when choosing lemons or limes, heavier fruits with thinner skins that give a little when squeezed will yield more juice.
  • 2 ounces Mango purée:
  • Twang’s chili-lime rimming salt (Sunrise Spice): a blend of mild chilies, spices, kosher flake salt and a hint of lime.
  • Lime wheel as a garnish.
  • Add ice to a mixing glass or shaker
  • Pour 1½ ounce Teremana Blanco
  • Pour ¾ ounce Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur
  • Pour ½ ounce agave
  • Pour ½ lime juice
  • Shake for 15-20 seconds


  • Twang offers several wonderful margarita rimming salts such as grapefruit, strawberry-lime, or classic lime.
  • For a crisp, herbal acidity, try Ancho Reyes Verde, the green chile version.


  • Feel free to substitute Teremana Reposado if the Blanco is unavailable.
  • If flavored salts aren’t your jam, any coarse kosher salt may be used to rim the glass. Avoid using iodized table salt, as it tends to be a little bitter and very salty.

When to Serve a Mango Mana

The MangoMANA is great for festive events or just chilling outside. Or inside—whatever suits your fancy.

  • Watching any movie with Dwayne Johnson: are you even a fan of The Rock if you don’t drink Teremana Tequila while watching his movies?
  • Hosting parties: The MangoMANA brings the fun, relaxing spirit of being on vacation to any event.
  • Warm weather/outdoor activities: Whether golfing, boating, grilling, or just sitting on the porch.

What to Serve with a Mango Mana

  • Fresh fruits, especially oranges, pineapples, and bananas.
  • The MangoaMANA goes well with Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes.
  • Medium bodied seafoods like shrimp, calamari, and grilled fish.
  • Spicy, savory foods such as Cajun or even curry.

Warning, drinking Teremana Tequila may inspire spontaneous wrestling, or a sudden need to watch Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw. So as always, be sure to enjoy the MangoMANA responsibly!
