Drink of the Week: Guavaberry Rum & Watermelon Cocktail

I spent a few mind bending days in paradise this summer.

It was a long journey.

(Insert blissful sigh.)

Four days of uninterrupted sunshine.

All I brought with me was a small carry on suitcase and all I brought back was a wicked tan, and a bottle of this sticky sweet, fruity elixir. Guavaberry liqueur.

It captures the warmth of the islands in a bottle...then you pour it into a glass, and...consider yourself transported right back to the sparkling beach...

And here is why I do not write ad copy. Could this explination be more cliche?

So look past my words, and go right for the won't be disapointed.

If you see some in your local liquor emporium...or if you want to get some online, do so, you will love it.

Support the peeps, and get your drink on.


Oh, and what was the best preparation of this libation?

1 cup watermelon, cubed
1 oz. Guavaberry liquoer
1/2 cup sparkling water
Slice of lime.

Combine all, let set for 10 minutes. Pour all into a tall glass with crushed ice. Garnish with lime and enjoy.

Repeat as needed.


The guavaberry or rumberry is a fruit tree which grows in the Caribbean - Wikipedia

Guavaberry liqueur is considered the national drink of St. Maarten

A treasured Christmas drink, guavaberry liqueur inspired holiday traditions. On St. Maarten, carolers would go from door to door, singing “Good morning, good morning, I come for me guavaberry." At each house, they'd receive a small sample from the owner's bottle. -


Rachael - i just wanted to stop by and say hi, cos I have been missing you (my own fault for not visiting many blogs recently), and because life is too short for regrets.
My dear Rachael, will you join us for some marathon caroling on St. Maarten? Get yer running shoes on! :)
