Are you a fan of guava?

I love it. But it isn’t a fruit I eat a lot of because I rarely see it fresh here in Georgia. For me, it’s something I equate more with traveling because that’s when I tend to enjoy it the most. But when I saw a carton of guava nectar in the store the other day, I decided to get it and do some cocktail experimenting with it!

Since I haven’t been traveling much, I figured I’d take myself on a little trip through my glass. And because guava always makes me think of my trip to South Africa years ago, I decided to create something tropical that would transport me back to the gorgeous lodge in Kruger Park that I stayed in where I enjoyed my first fresh guava ever.

The result is this Coconut Guavatini! It’s fruity. It’s pretty. It’s tropical. And it’s just what I need to make the heat and humidity here in Hotlanta a little bit more bearable.
