dawa cocktail made with vodka, lemon, honey and sugarDawa translates as medicine. In many of the recipes I found, it calls for lime and dawa. I have NO idea of what dawa is or where to find it, so lots of local honey from my farmers market will have to do. I added a honey stick, which then doubled as a straw…this drink cured my aching back.


  • 1 lemon, sliced into 6 sections
  • 1 tbs local honey
  • 1 honey stick
  • 1 tsp cane sugar
  • 2 oz vodka
  • Crushed ice


  • Cut lemon sections in half to form chunks.
  • Add lemon, sugar and honey in shaker.
  • Muddle to squeeze juice out of lime.
  • Add ice and vodka.
  • Shake.
  • Garnish with honey stick.
