Rooting Ourselves in Tradition

Merry Christmas! Traditions keep us rooted, which inspired this take on a barista classic โ›„๐ŸŽ„

For some people, the holidays can be a trigger for marinating ourselves in alcohol but I'm here to confirm there's a much less regrettable way to ease any tension at the dinner table.

It can be hard to finally discuss the open wounds, to deliver (or to be delivered) some rough news, or to just catch up when you're not in the ordinary habit of doing so. This causes some people to disconnect and dissociate from the magic of the holidays ๐Ÿ’”

I'm here to let you know that Christmas Spirit won't be found at the bottom of any bottle this year. But it will be found at the root of your being.

When we take the opportunity to revisit family traditions, and remind ourselves where we come from, we reconnect with the base of who we are. When we are in that space and we react with grace and love - no matter what - we uncover the real magic of Christmas ๐ŸŽ„โœจ

This drink is an ode to old traditions that are wrapped within new ones. This drink reminds us that it's okay to make different decisions moving forward, but also to not discredit what HAS been working along the way.

Kava is a root, and it is here to help us find our own roots.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Note: this is a base drink. If you love peppermint chai, mocha chai, pumpkin chai, or any chai in between - simply add 1/4 to 1/2 oz of that flavored syrup to your drink! (I rarely recommend using powder flavors because the consistency can be WEIRD - kava Is already a thicker, grittier tea than your typical green / black / white tea varieties.)

Thanks to our delightful kavatender @olivia_shubin for the recipe ๐Ÿ’•
