Traditional margaritas have their own place in the world. But the guavarita is even better. A little guava nectar goes a long way in this marg, making it a sweet and sassy summer libation.

Ingredients

1/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup lime juice 2 cups guava nectar ¾ cup tequila ½ cup orange liqueur Salt for rim

Directions

Combine water, sugar and lime juice in a pan and bring to a boil. Stir, allowing the sugar to dissolve then remove from heat and let cool. Once cool, pour into a pitcher with guava nectar, tequila and orange liqueur. Stir well. Spread the salt on a plate. Using your finger tip, dip it in the mixture and run it along the rim of the glass. Place the glass in the salt and twist, coating the rim of the glass in the salt. Fill the glass with ice and pour the margarita mixture into the glass. Serve immediately.

Makes approximately 6 margaritas.
