When I was a kid, it was stereotypical for the girls to dress in pink and the boys in blue. And because I was pretty much forced to wear pink most of the time, I developed a kind of love hate relationship with it. Love because I actually adored the colour and hate because I would be called a ‘girly girl’ whenever I wore it. And this was completely unacceptable to me, especially while playing tough games like police and robbers in the neighbourhood! I could not bear to have my game credentials questioned because of a colour! (Racism at the grassroot level!). So I avoided pink as I grew up, until one day my wardrobe had nothing that was pink. And then the revolution happened – the metrosexual male stepped over the line and wore the prettiest baby pink shirt! That was it… something snapped inside of me. The hypocrites! All the while belittling us women for being girly girls for wearing pink and now romping around town doing the same! I quickly did a 360° turn and embraced my long lost friend – pretty pretty pink. My Guava drink is a toast to you!
P.S. Now don’t let the prettiness of the drink fool you, it’s got enough vodka to knock a grown man into happy oblivion J
Prep time: 5 mins
What you need:
90ml Guava Nectar ( I use Tropicana)
60 ml White Rum
30 ml Lime Juice
4-5 Mint sprigs
1 tsp Sugar
1 cup Crushed Ice/ Ice Cubes
Club Soda (optional)
Crushed sugar to rim the glass
What to do:
Rim the serving glass with the crushed sugar. (Wet the glass rim. Place the sugar on a plate and place the glass rim side down in the sugar).
Muddle the mint sprigs and 1tsp sugar in the glass. (I place the mint springs in the palm of my hand and clap to release the lovely oils before muddling).
Top the glass with crushed ice/ ice cubes.
In a coaktail shaker mix the vodka and guava nectar and shake well. Pour onto the crushed ice. Top with club soda and garnish with mint springs. Enjoy in style!
