When we were in Kona last October, we went to a little 'kava bar' called Kanaka Kava, where they serve a drink made from the kava plant. It's nonalcoholic, but has an odd narcotic-like effect. It tastes pretty awful by itself, so we opted for a mix with fruit juices. It numbed our mouths and made us feel a little relaxed, but certainly isn't as potent as a Xanax or a shot of tequila.

Dan found a place online and ordered some powered kava, which tonight we used with orange and pineapple juice to make a little kava drink. We sipped from coconut bowls (of course), and enjoyed the relaxing numbing effects while we watched some TV before bed.
