Guava Gin Fizz
This recipe was inspired by the delicious guava syrup that I received from event sponsor Torani. I did some recipe testing early on and made a Double-Decker Guava Tres Leches Cake but I really wanted a fun libation to pour into the Stella glasses from sponsor JoyJolt.
Then I added in a citrus garnish on my 'rock candy sticks' from sponsor Sweets and Treats. This drink adds a level of pizzazz to any brunch table. Cheers!
Ingredients makes two cocktails
- 4 T + 2 t, divided, guava syrup (prefer Torani)
- ¼ C gin
- ¼ C freshly squeezed lemon juice
- lemon twists and slices for garnish
- sparkling water, chilled
- Also needed: ice, cocktail shaker
To a cocktail shaker filled with ice add gin, lemon juice, and 4 T guava syrup. Shake well and strain into two glasses filled with ice. Top with chilled sparkling water. Add in another 1 t guava syrup on top and garnish with lemon twists and slices.
