Sipping Kava

2 tablespoons of Concentrated Frozen Grape Juice
3 tabs of Instant Kava
4-6 oz of Ginger Ale (small bottle)
1/2 lime or lemon

Add 2 tabs Frozen Grape Concentrate and Stir.
Add juice of the lime/lemon
Add Ice
Pour Ginger Ale till to the top.

You can take 6 oz. of Grog,  add the Grape Extract,the lime, and 4/5 ice cubes.  This Kava Recipe tastes better good for Kava tea .
Kava Recipe for Mokka Kava Kaffee (Using Grog)
I love my morning coffee and I love a good iced coffee in the afternoon.  This recipe insures that you will sleep well even if you  have coffee in the afternoon.  A few words of caution.  Use a high Kavain Hawiian Kava, not a sedating one.  Sip it slowly and listen to your body to make sure you can handle the two.  I love the combo but I know people who get Heart Palpitations from caffein so go slow and listen to your body.

Ingredients:
About 6 oz. of Kava Tea prepared the Tradicional way (Grog)
Make extra coffee in the morning, about 3 to 4 oz. I used Hawaii Mokka (get it?)
Cocoa Power
Condensed Milk (Tablespoon)
Sugar Syrup (Google it, just water and sugar) and it is Optional

Preparation:
Put the Leftover Coffee in a small Pan with 1 tablespoon of Cocoa Powder and stir
Add one Table Spoon of Condensed Milk 
Heat on low until Mixed and save for the afternoon.

Afternoon:
Add  6 oz. of prepared Kava Tea to your Coffee Mix.
Add Sugar Syrup to Taste (the condensed milk is already sweet)
Add Ice and enjoy.

This drink is a very nice pick me up.  I like Kavain Kava and Coffee but sip slowy to make sure you can handle the two.  One of the few times when I can sleep after having coffee in the afternoon.


After weeks of testing different ingredients, we finally came up with one main theme that seems to work.  You want to replace the bitter taste you don’t like (Kava) with a bitter taste that you do like (Lime, Lemon, etc).  The majority of the recipes use Micronized or Instant Kava.  We have to admit that we are totally spoiled on both the convenience, the negligible taste, and the potency of both.   Always stir your Kava Kocktail with a spoon because Kava does sink to the bottom.  Also, the word Grog stands for Kava Tea prepared the tradicional way.  Please check out this link for a recipe for Micronized Kava Syrup that can be added to your Kocktails in lieu of instant or micronized Kava.
