Kava Colada

Kava Kava is an herbal remedy that’s made from the roots of Piper methysticum — a type of plant found in the islands of the Pacific Ocean. Its name literally means “intoxicating pepper.” People who live on Pacific islands like Fiji and Tonga have used it for hundreds of years in social gatherings and traditional medicine. They dry out the roots or crush them into a powder. Then they add water and drink the mixture. (ref: https://www.webmd.com/vitamins-and-supplements/what-is-kava-kava#1 )

So far my favorite way to consume kava is in a colada.

Prepare the kava tea: take 1 ounce of kava powder and blend it in 32 ounces of hot (90 degreen-ish) water for 5 minutes then let sit for 20 minutes. Strain the mixture into a mason jar to get out the small root particles.

Mixing the drink: in a blender add 6 ounces kava tea with 2 ounces Coco Loco coconut milk, 2 ounces pineapple juice and a bunch of ice cubes. Blend to desired consistency and pour in a glass. Garnish with a pineapple slice and a cherry.
