Guava Margarita

Another option to make a refreshing beverage out of a tropical fruit. You really can have some fun creating these concoctions. Do spend a little more on the tequila because you are making a margarita from scratch. It is worth it! I highly recommend one that contains 100% agave. Try to get limes with thin skin, because they usually are juicier. Also roll them on the counter with the palm of your hand to yield more juice. See my recipe Simple Syrup if you would like to make your own simple syrup. The ingredient amounts will make two servings as shown.

Rinse blender to make sure there aren’t any seeds remaining. Pour guava juice, lime juice, triple sec, simple syrup and tequila in blender and add ice. Blend until smooth.
