Signature Cocktail #7: Guava Rum Punch

Escape the doldrums of winter—momentarily, at least—with this tropically inspired cocktail. Your taste buds will be doing a hula dance. Here’s Carlene Thomas, our wedding wellness expert, with the short and sweet recipe for this bright, fruity libation.
Deep into the winter months, we all start feeling a bit blue and weary of the cold weather. It’s about the time when many of us begin craving a tropical vacation. Since scent is one of the strongest ties we have to memories of said warm wanderings, the choice of an aromatic fruit is one step in the right direction. Both guava and lime (and let’s be honest, rum as well) smell like somewhere sunny and lush. Luckily, guava is so naturally flavorful and sweet that no added sugar is needed, and this three-ingredient drink is simplicity at its finest.
♦ 1.5 ounces of spiced rum
♦ 1.5 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
♦ 4 ounces of guava nectar
♦ Fresh guava and lime for garnish

Chill a glass in the freezer. Cube the fresh guava and slice a round of lime to place on a swizzle stick. In the chilled glass, pour rum, fresh lime juice, and guava nectar. Stir.
Note: Guava nectar is very easy to find in international markets or the Latin American section of most groceries.
