Hakanoa and Handmade

handmadehakanoa Hakanoa Handmade make their ginger beer with real local ingredients. The fermentation process takes around a week, and the drinks are then bottled in recyclable plastic.

The business is local and sustainable, and was started by Rebekah Hay. The drinks are all organic and preservative free, and flavours much stronger and fresher than mass-produced, carbonated competitors. The Dry Ginger Beer is made from filtered water, organic fairtrade raw sugar, fresh ginger, dried organic ginger, organic sultanas and fresh lemons. Other products include Lime & Chilli Ginger Beer (with fresh chillies!), Ginger Syrup (which can be mixed with hot water to make Hot Ginger Toddy, mixed with milk for a divine ginger latte, or simply added to ice cream), and Spicy Chai, which combines water, ginger, sugar, Black Broken Orange Pekoe tea, cinnamon, pepper, cloves, cardamom and sultanas. Whizz this up with hot milk for an instant chai latte.

As these products are naturally fermented, they are great digestive aids

  • Now I wish I had hung out in the Little America lobby and had the free hot chocolate. I didn't even know how cool it was until now. Did you<a href="http://ttorgmlkw.com"> relaly</a> wear your high school Christmas Ho Ho Ho flannels to the grocery store? Funny. Dad and I love being with our kids wherever they are. This weekend was so much fun!! We'll be back in December, and staying at Little America. I'll get a second chance to sit by the fire and sip hot chocolate.

  • I've had this recipe boamokrked for-ever! Finally made it last night and so glad I did. Sure it required some extra flossing time, but like a good pesto, it was worth it!!! Instead of sharing I took my leftovers to work with me for lunch, I was completely floored that the crispy kale and brown rice held up as a delish lunch! This will be in regular rotation for sure. Thank you!1f7c
