Guava Mojitos
Servings: 8 Prep 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of 1 container (21 ounces) guava paste, about 3/4 cup (see Note)
  • 1 cup light rum
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 1 cup loosely packed mint leaves
  • 2 cans (12 ounces each) club soda or seltzer
  • 2 - 4 drops red food coloring
  • 10 cups ice
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish

Make It

1. Place guava paste, rum, lime juice and sugar in a blender. Puree until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes.

2. Add mint leaves; pulse on and off until mint leaves are chopped but not smooth.

3. Transfer mixture to a large pitcher; stir in seltzer. Tint slightly pink with red food coloring. Add ice and serve chilled.

Note

  • This jellylike paste of tart-sweet tropical fruit works well with cheese; pureed, it lends body to sauces. To rim the glasses with sugar, rub lime slice around glass edge. Place colored sugar on a small plate; invert glass into sugar, pressing to coat rim.
