If anyone ever told me I would have a neighbor in my backyard with a guava tree…. I'd have laughed. Before last night I didn't even know what a guava looked like!
So when Joe walked in with a handful of them and told me our neighbor had given them to him, I was pretty excited. Our neighbor is vietnamese and does not speak english very well. So it is quite humorous for us to communicate. He is quite the gardener and has shared some other goods from his yard with us. The guava though, is by far the most delicious!
We cut the greenish yellow fruit open and I am not kidding, this one little ripe fruit smelled so beautiful. Everyone tried a piece….. four out of six of us loved it. And since two of those four were the parents…… and it was sweltering hot outside…… Joe said to me. This could make a good margarita!
I love that man.
So as he labored away fixing things outside….. I came up with this (inside with the central air).
Guava Mint Margaritas
4 shots tequila
2 shots triple sec
1/2 can of lime-aid frozen concentrate
2 ripe guavas seeded, peeled and sliced
a small handful of fresh mint from my yard
through above ingredients into your blender…..
until it is your desired consistency.
Makes 1 blender full of yumminess.
These are what we call "high octane" around here……. uff-da!
I am sure they would be almost as good alcohol free if you want to try that too……
Oh yum. So – so – very – very yum!!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
