Cinco de Mayo: Guayaba Margarita
Nate Fishman, Liquor Lab, New York
- 2 oz Santera Reposado tequila
- 1 oz Guava-infused agave (mix 1 cup guava nectar and 1 cup agave nectar)
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- Add all ingredients to a shaker. Shake and strain into rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a slice of guava.
- Mexican guayaba or guava is a year-round ingredient with a fragrant tropical aroma. I choose to mix it with Santera Reposado in this springtime margarita. The balance of the citrus peel and mild oak flavor of the tequila plays well with the guayaba’s unique character.
