Guava Spritzer

Guava spritzer

The smell of guavas are irresistibly sweet and I can easily sniff its presence even if it is meters away from me ;)

I simply love the fruit, but then I'm pretty specific of its ripeness. I enjoy them much more when they are absolutely yellow, well ripen and soft to bite :)


Its an enjoyable fruit as it is, but imagine making a stunning drink with it for the evening thirst and having it with some chit chat on the side!! Isn't it tempting enough?! :)

Can you notice the small bubbles flying on top of the aerated drink? ;)

Found this recipe on Tarladala using pink guavas and immediately got inspired to make it at home :)


And of course my version of Spritzer doesn't have wine :)

Ingredients:

Guava fruit - 2
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece

Lemon juice - 2 tsp

Sugar - for taste S
Soda

Guava spritzer4

Method:

Chop guava roughly. Peel and chop ginger.

Grind guava pieces and ginger pieces by adding just a little water. Pass through a sieve to remove the seeds cleanly.
Add sugar and lemon juice to it and mix thoroughly.

Sterilize a bottle and collect the guava syrup in it.


Pour 1/2 of the serving glass with this guava syrup and top it with chilled soda. Stir well and serve immediately.


You can preserve the guava syrup upto a week in the refrigerator.

Enjoy the chill guava spritzer :)

Remember to choose ripe fruits for making this.
