May 9, 2014

Now that we’re in the swing of spring, we’re ready for more. Tropical breezes, powdery beaches, sparkling seas that melt into sunny skies: Yes, yes and yes, please. We can’t pack our bags just yet, so we’re ending the workweek with this getaway in a glass. Featuring our fine friend tequila and special guest guava, it’s quite the great escape.


WHAT YOU’LL NEED4 oz. guava nectar
1 oz. pineapple juice
½ oz. lemon juice
2 oz. tequila
½ oz. triple sec
Dash of grenadine
Coarse salt

Combine the nectar, juices, tequila, triple sec, and grenadine in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold and pour into a salt-rimmedglasswith additional ice, as needed. Garnish with tropical fruit, pop open a cocktail umbrella and enjoy your stay.
