Mamulique is an extinct Pakawan language of Nuevo León, Mexico.

Called Carrizo (Carrizo de Mamulique) by Jean-Louis Berlandier, it was recorded in a twenty-two-word vocabulary (in two versions) from near Mamulique, Nuevo León in 1828 (Berlandier et al. 1828–1829, 1850: 68–71). These speakers were a group of about forty-five families who were all Spanish-speaking Christians.
