Thirsty Thursday: Tituba (pronounced Tichiba)

What better name for this eastern witches' brew, than the first accused in the Salem Witch trials?

I *know* this is Calypso from Pirates of the Carribean, but give me a break!! ;D
Tituba, a slave and social outcast, was singled out along with two others as the first of Salem's witches. After severe beatings and a promise of freedom upon cooperation, Tituba confessed of practicing witchcraft. She was then put in prison, where she stayed until she was sold and taken from Salem. Her freedom was never granted, nor was she ever tried for being a witch, since she had confessed outright. Read more here.
