“After looking at other guava margarita recipes, I decided to create my own because I do not care for all the sweet drinks out there and wanted to use what I have from my yard. I have Meyer lemons and guavas but guavas are not in season so used Kerns guava juice/nectar. I was also looking for the pinkish hue and added grenadine to boost the color.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup guava juice (such as Kerns juice or nectar)
  • 14 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 14-13 cup silver tequila
  • 1 12 tablespoons triple sec
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • ice cube, for shaking
  • lemon slice (to garnish)
  • coarse salt, for rimming the glass (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients with the exception of lemon slices and salt in a shaker. Place plenty of ice into shaker and shake for 30 seconds or so.
  2. Pour into martini or other glasses of your choice and place several ice cubes in the drinks. Top with lemon slice on the rim.
  3. You may also want to wet the glass rim with lemon juice and dip into coarse salt for salt rimmed glass before pouring in the drink.
