Guavarita Cocktail!

Guavarita Cocktail!

In Southern California we are fortunate to have many exotic fruits growing in our own backyards—and sometimes our neighbors! This recipe was inspired by a friend’s tree-ripened Strawberry Guavas of which I created our newest jam, Guava LUV. They are tart, sweet and add a unique fruity flavor to a Margarita. 
Makes 1
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz triple sec
1 1/2 oz tequilla
1 T Guava LUV jam
Rock Sugar for Rim—optional

Add the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.

Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass or rocks glass filled with fresh ice.

Garnish with a fresh guava wheel & lemon twist.

For a slightly sweeter drink, add more Guava LUV to cocktail shaker —before shaking.
