The first frozen Daiquiri with rum, lime/lemon juice and a touch of sugar is said to have been created in Cuba during the early 20th century. Since then, this recipe went through many modifications with the addition of different fruit purees. This is my version of a Guava daiquiri. Guava nectar is readily available at all well-stocked supermarkets. This drink can be a superb addition to any holiday get-together.
• 1 cup Guava nectar
• ⅛ cup Captain Morgan spiced rum
• 1 tablespoon lime juice
• 1 tablespoon Rose syrup (recipe follows)
• 1cup crushed ice
Place all the ingredients in the blender and blend until it becomes frothy. Pour into glasses and serve.
Rose Syrup: Yield 1 cup • 1 cup sugar
• 1 cup water
• ½ teaspoon green cardamom seed powder
• 1 teaspoon rosewater
• few drops of red food coloring
To make the syrup, boil sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring it to boil for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add cardamom powder, rosewater and food coloring. Let the syrup come to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 month.
I am a chemist. After my children went to college, I decided to follow my passion - cooking and entertaining. I wrote and published a book called Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen. My book is a fusion of Eastern philosophy with Western style. It is a cookbook, entertaining book and coffee table book all in one. It is a 320-page hardbound book with over 260 luscious photographs. This book will make the most beautiful coffee table book to salivate your taste buds and stimulate your mind with Indian culture and traditions. My goal is to demystify Indian food and promote the health benefits of spices. Please check out my website, http://www.komalinunna.com, for more information about my book. My other hobbies include gardening, flower arranging, cake decorating and tablescaping. I want to share all the beautiful things that inspire me. I hope that this blog is a source of accessible and attainable information for people who visit. I would love to hear from you.
