Munkoyo is a popular drink in rural Zambia. It is a mildly fermented drink made from pounded roots mixed with bits of maize. The mixture can be consumed immediately after it is made or allowed to ferment for several days becoming alcoholic with fermentation.
It is often called "sweet beer" by Zambians. It is also found in central African countries like Congo where it is used as a drink in traditional ceremonies as well as an ordinary beverage.
