Brazilian Guava Cocktail

 

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 4

This fruity twist on a classic Brazilian caipirinha gets a spicy kick from Ancho-Arbol Syrup and a sweet, smooth finish from fragrant guava nectar.

Ingredients

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

8 chilies de arbol

1 tsp McCormick® McCormick Gourmet™ Chile Pepper, Ancho

4 limes

ice

1 cup white rum

1 cup guava nectar

Directions

For the Ancho-Arbol Syrup, mix all ingredients in small saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand 2 hours. Strain through double layer of cheesecloth or coffee filters. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled. (This makes enough syrup for 4 cocktails.)@*

For each cocktail, place 4 pieces of lime and 1/4 cup of the Ancho-Arbol Syrup in beverage glass. Muddle the lime with a muddler or wooden spoon to release the lime juice. Fill glass with ice. Add 1/4 cup each Cachaça and guava nectar; mix well. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 cocktails.@*
