Haiti Energy Drink Marbir

I need help. I have been drinking a Haitian Energy drink for three days, I do not know what it is, and I cannot find information. Maybe the spelling is bad, I had a person write ti down for me, however, I am sure spelling is not the strong suit of Haitians.

I savor the taste, I try my best, I can say it is a sharp taste, in many ways like a tart cough syrup. This is not a sweet soft drink, the flavor rings in your mouth.

This women stop at the Cyber Café daily at 7:30-7:45 am, she is predictable. For five Gourde or about eight cents US, I can purchase this drink. None of the players in this scene speak French worth a darn, they try a few word of this, and sign language is the dominant language. They told me with the universal sign for energy, a close fist, pulled towards themselves, this drink is for energy. Sometimes when they do this, they point at the love machine.

I have not been able to find it, or purchase it later in the day. I have found that between the hours of 6:00 am and 7:30 am in most countries, there are things happening in cultures, overlooked if you are not out and about.

None of the players in this scene speak French worth a darn " ? What about that bunch of school boys in the left of the picture ? They reminded me of all the well groomed children I saw in Cuba no matter how poor the village , which frequently only had mud roadways .Incidentally , I for one , would certainly buy a book if you did one from all your blogs . Think of al those places you could cover with a book tour !

This looks like something a freind from cuba used to drink. If it has no alcohol or fruit juice, its probably "malta", or unfermented barley and molasses. Its slow-release carbs, without the blood sugar spike of fruit juice or soda. Pour some molasses into a bottle of near-beer if you want it elsewhere.

Something like this?

A new name is "Marbir Amer." The woman dips this from a bucket. A malt would make sense, however nobody so far has the answer. The one snagged the word in a search.
