Guys, it's been SO hot here in NYC! I think the temperature is dropping to something a little more reasonable tomorrow but the past two days have been brutal with it being over 90 degrees. I wasn't prepared for summer weather so soon. That's why I needed something cold, especially because we dont have AC in our house yet. I saw Mexican guavas at my local fruit market and decided to make a delicious daiquiri variation.
I love Mexican guavas because they're easier to work with, small, sweet and perfect for cocktails. You don't have to remove the skin, although try to remove as much of the seeds as possible because they will change the texture of your drink.
Frozen Coconut Guava Daiquiri, serves 1
1 1/2 oz. Dark Rum
1 oz. Lime Juice
3/4 oz. Coconut Milk
1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
2 small guavas
Add all your ingredients to your blender pitcher, add ice, and blend on smoothie setting. Pour into your desired serving vessel and garnish with a guava slice.
Happy weekend everyone! I'm totally in love with how these came out. I've actually never worked with fresh guava before, only the puree kind, and I'm so happy I decided to make a cocktail with them. They made this drink extra delicious and added a lot of fruitiness and some slight tartness to an already super refreshing cocktail. These defintely did the trick and cooled me down on this hot and sweaty afternoon. I hope you decide to make these at home and if you do, don't forget to drop me a line below in the comments!
