Guavas are in season right now and in honor of that, here are 4 pretty great cocktails you can make with guava juice. But first, here’s how to make guava juice:

Or if you are feeling rather unwilling to pull out all the stops for a cocktail drink, you can make a Guavka which is just as it sounds – guava juice with a splash of vodka.

 

PS. We are not all professional bartenders with jiggers, shakers and strainers lying around the house so you may have to improvise a little. 6 Oz is about the size of a regular glass cup so if the instruction says 6 Oz guava juice and 2 Oz vodka, you know you’re putting a full cup of juice and 1/3 cup of vodka.

 

That’s all for guava cocktails! Let us know how yours turn out.
