How to spice up your kava during the holidays

This goes a little against strict kava tradition, but during the holidays, we are surrounded by delicious festive cocktails; hot toddies, eggnog, hot buttered rum to name just a few. 

But what about those who choose kava over alcohol? While we love kava earthy flavor, don’t we also deserve a little holiday cheer in our glass?  We think so!

So here are some tasty ideas for holiday cheer kava style.
