This summer party drink is a definite crowd pleaser, and if you share a similar pet peeve of corn syrup in mixers, then this is recipe using fruit nectar is definitely for you. The main ingredients in packaged nectars are simply water, fruit puree, sugar and citric acid (as a preservative) … not too bad-sounding if you’re looking for the healthiest juice options at a convenience and don’t mind a little sugar.
Nectar usually has a very thick consistency (with actual pieces of real fruit), so using it in mixed drinks and shaking it with ice works really well in thinning it out. This recipe is for one drink, so plan accordingly.
- 1/2 cup Malibou coconut rum
- 1/2 cup Bacardi rum
- 1/2 cup guava nectar
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- ice as needed
- sugar cane for garnish
- Combine liquid ingredients in a martini shaker, and enough ice to your liking.
- Shake thoroughly and pour into chilled glasses with ice.
- This is best enjoyed with a piece of sugar cane.
