Guavatini and a Guava Eclipse

I love coming up with new cocktail recipes. I bought a can of guava nectar at the Mexican grocery store the other day and I invented these two drinks. One is a guavatini, which is just guava nectar and good tequila, and a guava eclipse, which is a pretty cool looking drink of guava, Sprite and red wine.

For the Guavatini:

  • 2 oz. Guava nectar
  • 1 oz. Patron tequila, or any other good tequila
In a martini shaker, add ice, the guava nectar and tequila. Shake virously. Dip the rim of a martini glass in a shallow bowl of water, then dip the rim in sugar. Strain the cocktail into the martini glass and enjoy immediately!

For the Guava Eclipse:

  • A can of Guava nectar
  • Sprite or any lemon-lime soda
  • A good, dark red wine
In a highball glass, add crushed ice and fill it about 1/3 full of guava nectar. Add 2 oz. red wine and a splash of Sprite. Enjoy the eclipse, just make sure to mix it before drinking.
