Damiana is a brand of liqueur flavored with damiana, an herb native to Central and South America and southwest Texas. Damiana is reputed to be an aphrodisiac, though its effects may be due to urethral irritation.
Damiana liqueur has a light gold color, and smells and tastes of citrus and herbs. It can be substituted for Triple Sec fairly well. It is packaged in a bottle shaped like an Incan fertility goddess.
