Love and Confections: Guava Mojito

September 2, 2014

Guava Mojito

A Guava Mojito is the perfect way to enjoy a relaxing day on the beach or by the pool. Sand, sun and a tropical drink in hand is the best way to spend a day.

I love mojitos and this Guava Mojito is definitely one on the top of my list. I grew up in Miami where the Cuban coffee flowed freely and the guayaba pastelitos were everywhere. I absolutely love them and that is where my love of guava stems from. Going through the grocery aisle, one day, I found a can of guava nectar and knew instantly I was going to make a mojito with it. Guava reminds me of all the flavors of Miami that I miss.

 The sweet guava juice paired with the lime, mint and rum is heavenly. I hope you are able to find guava nectar in your grocery store's ethnic aisle, because you do not want to pass this drink up. I made a Mint Simple Syrup because I don't like having bits of mint floating around in my drink.
