Dawa Sticks

Handmade in Nairobi, Kenya, each set of four sticks has a unique set of colored beads.  This is an essential tool in the production of our favorite cocktail, the Dawa.

Recipe:  Take a nice round, shiny, juicy lime and cut it into quarters.  Toss the limes in a rocks glass, add a rounded teaspoon of sugar, 2 oz. of vodka, and a heaping teaspoon of your favorite honey.  With your Dawa stick, smoosh the mixture together and top off the glass with ice.  Continue smooshing.  Sip.  Smoosh.  It's a drink, and something to do with your hands.  In Kiswahili it means "medicine."  I'm not going to argue.
