If you get them right, kava shots can be fit for royalty!
In 1954, the Queen of England visited Fiji, 2 years after her coronation. You can see the video of that event here.
Queen Elizabeth II was greeted in the traditional Fijian way with a kava ceremony – which has been the way that foreign dignitaries have been honoured for centuries in Fiji. When the first kava “cup” was offered to the Queen and she lifted it to her lips and drank, she was returning the honor to Fiji.
Since then numerous members of Royal families have tasted kava in Fiji.
