Guava Margarita

Share This:

New year’s in my childhood home meant two things.



So how does a guava margarita fit into the mix?  Nowhere, really I had leftover guavas from making my Ponche Navideno and I find sipping a cocktail as I stand over my pot skimming foam for my pozole broth makes for a more enjoyable time.

Margarita motivation.

Enjoy! Sweet Life

guavas – plum sized , yellowish skinned fruit with a pear like taste. their inside is filled with filled with small seeds some edible, some very tough. they can be used for liquados, aguas or candied.  sold  fresh, frozen or jarred with alimbar (sugar syrup) 

You can purchase guava juice or make your own.  Peel guavas, remove seeds and blend.  Strain and your ready to go.  Some people prefer not to peel, but I find the skin can sometimes add a bitter aftertaste. It is a little time consuming, but adds great flavor.

  6. Oh me oh my. This post could not have come at a better time.

    I was in Kauai over Christmas and was absolutely spoiled by the abundance of all things guava. I had a glass of guava nectar with breakfast just about every morning.

    The thought of it in a margarita makes me want to do a little dance.
