Spiced Guava Shots is a delicious non-alcoholic drink that has an explosion of sweet, sour and slightly spicy flavours in one sip. Inspired from the popular ‘Mexican candy shot’, this non-alcoholic version is a tasty twist to the classic Mexican drink.
I have used Mexican Guava for this recipe for an authentic Mexican flavour. Guava is a round or oval shaped fruit with small edible seeds that is native to Mexico, Central America, South America, and Asia. The outer skin when ripe can range from light green, yellow to a red (depending on the variety). The flesh/pulp when ripe can be anything from an off white to a deep red or pink, depending on the variety. Guava’s taste is quite unique as it is sweet, and it tastes like a hybrid between a strawberry and a pear.
Like many fruits and vegetables, guava is no different in being considered a superfood and a powerhouse with a host of health benefits.
This spiced guava shot combines sweet fruity flavour of guava and sour and spicy flavours from the spices and lime. If you are looking for an extra kick to your drink- then this shot is the perfect way to start the evening! It is spicy but not overly so as it has undertones of sweetness, saltiness, and sourness to balance it. It is a perfectly balanced drink!
