V8 Rum Splash

Ingredients (Makes 4 Servings):

8 rounded tablespoons of Powdered Kona Kava Root
1 bottle of V-8 Splash Smoothies (Tropical Colada)
4 ounces of "Matusalem" rum (Plain, white, no flavoring)
Double screen sifter

  1. Put the entire bottle of Tropical Colada into the blender.
  2. Add the 4oz of Rum
  3. Add the 8 rounded tablespoons of Powdered Kona Kava Root
  4. Stir gently with a spoon until the root is wet.
  5. Blend on LOW speed for 5 minutes.
  6. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  7. Blend for 1 minute just to stir the root from the bottom.
  8. Quickly pour the contents through the Double Screen Sifter into another container.
  9. Rinse the root from the Double Sifter.
  10. Repeat Steps 8 & 9 until there is no more root on the Double Sifter.

Now, you can serve immediately with ice, or you can let the Kava Colada settle. Once it's settles, you can carefully pour off of the top, but we like having some of the root in our drink; to us, it's like having the pulp in the orange juice; it's more natural, it's a good source of vitamins and fiber, and it makes for a more natural, organic experience.
