From the producers of the Nairobi Wine Festival comes yet another one of a kind event, The Dawa Music Festival, set to take place at Carnivore on the 29th of June. This is one way, NO! Actually the only way to end the month in style.

Baraka Israeli in conjunction with the Tamarind group have partnered together to throw another ravishing event that has got people buzzing and we cannot keep calm. You have to admit the idea is quite unique. The DAWA cocktail was introduced in Kenya 40 years ago and ever since its birth, Kenyans have taken quite a liking to it. It is in honor of four decades since its arrival that Carnivore have chosen to celebrate the magic potion. The beverage has gotten better and better over the years with newer flavors being created.

The cocktail comprises mainly of honey, lime and vodka but with the different flavors the likes of sugarcane and even khat (miraa), you definitely have to try out the varieties of the savory drink. It is one of the widely consumed cocktails alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Just as the name suggests its medicinal powers precedes it.
