If this is your first time visiting this blog, welcome to my guava blog! Ha! JK.
But seriously my obsession with guava knows no bounds which I guess makes sense since I’m a first-generation Cuban-American living in South Florida.
Us, Cubans, looooove guava. Don’t know what guava is? I’m glad you asked!
What is guava?
Guava is a tropical fruit that is oval in shape with a rough light green skin. Their insides are a light pink color and they taste a little sour-sweet.
There are several varieties of guava fruits but the most common one taste like a mix between a strawberry and a lemon. Sounds weird, right? It’s so unique though.
Don’t knock it til you try it!
Today, I’m using guava nectar and a fun secret ingredient to make this guava mimosa recipe and I cannot WAIT to share it with you!
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Chilled Brut Champagne. For this recipe, I used a bottle of brut champagne (you can also use Processo) because it’s dryer and less sweet.
- Chilled Guava Nectar. I also used guava nectar (you can also use pink guava juice) which pairs well with the dry champagne.
- Elderflower Liqueur. My secret ingredient! Yep, I added elderflower liqueur (St-Germain) which is not common when making classic mimosas. The combo was phenomenal! The elderflower liqueur does not taste as floral or lavender-like, as you might expect, it tastes just like LYCHEE! And honestly, I can’t think of a better way to sweeten this mimosa up than with a lychee tasting liqueur.
How To Make Elderflower Guava Mimosas
Here’s how I brought these mimosas to life:
- Start with guava. Into a champagne flute, pour 1/4 cup of chilled guava nectar and 1 tablespoon (or more, if you’d like) of the elderflower liqueur.
- Pour the champagne. Fill up the rest of the glass with the chilled champagne. Repeat for the rest of the champagne flutes.
- Garnish. I then cut guava paste into cubes and used it as a garnish which you can also do if desired.
This fizzy elderflower guava mimosa is not only refreshingly sweet but its flavor is so unique, you won’t get enough!
That’s all folks! Can’t wait for you to make this perfect brunch drink!
