"Looking for something different? Try this for something new and tropical! You will love it! Guava has a sweet vanilla-like flavor that pairs wonderfully with the mint and rum."

"I've had a can of guava nectar in my cabinet for a long time and didn't quite know what to do with it. I love mojitos, so I thought I'd give this a try. It was really good! I still prefer the traditional recipe, but it's nice to change it up a little. Thanks!"
"Delicioso. Very refreshing!"
"Delish! A perfect pink color for a girly get together. I'll go heavy on the mint sprigs next time, as not much of the mint pieces come through the strainer, and I like my mint pieces in a mojito. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"Mmmmm! My DH and I loved it. The flavors mix perfectly. Thank you for posting, Mama! Made for Bevy Tag."
"Incredible Mojito Mama's Kitchen. Made for my son's birthday dinner. We enjoyed this sassy drink very much. I loved that you could taste the individual flavors of the guava, rum, lime and mint. A perfect balance of flavors, which only needed a little club soda to finish it off. It was very refreshing and well received. Thanks for sharing."
"This was probably one of the better mojitos we had on my girls' mojito night...after I tweaked it a bit. Only 2 ounces of rum for my crowd and we felt we needed more guava juice because the flavor wasn't coming through enough having to compete with the mint and lime. (maybe our taste buds were dulled by then, lol) Liked the one teaspoon (not tablespoons!) of sugar as some of the other drinks were kinda too sweet. Finished it off with a nice splash of soda water. Thanks! It's a keeper. Made for ZWT4."
"Made for ZWT4 and so glad I found it! Refreshing and so tasty."
"Another tropical drink that's so good...you may drink it too quickly! The sweet guava nectar makes this a drink that most people will love--not as tangy as a traditional mojito."
"We made these on the 4th of July and they were a huge hit! I just love the guava in these! I did use club soda to extend the drinks! This is fabulous! Zaar World Tour 4 Whine and Cheese"
"I like mojitos but this one is even better. I like the little taste of guava mixed to the lime. I didn't need to add club soda. It's a beautiful drink. Thanks Mama. Made for the Babes of ZWT4"
"I really enjoyed this. It was tasty on its own but even nicer for me when I added a bit of sprite in place of the club soda. If you wanted to make a virgin version of this for the kids the sprite might be a good sub for the rum. Made for ZWT4."
"I made this for my mom today after a busy day cleaning up the yard. It was nice and refreshing and just what we needed to cool ourselves down. I added extra sugar, extra guava juice and added the club soda- making the single serving into two large ones. Thanks Mama! Made for ZWT 4 by a Jefe de la Cocina."
"Kim was right, I love this Mojito! It was just delightful with the guava juice. Not to sweet, a bit tart and a perfect blend. Great drink from Mama's Kitchen! ZWT4 visiting Central/South America."
"WOW!! I really enjoyed this one! Sweet and minty! I didn't strain it but I like the mint floating around in the drink, lol. I added just a splash of club soda and squeezed some fresh lime juice. Mama Rocks the Bar again!! Made for the Babes of ZWT4."
"What a wonderful variation on mojito. I followed the recipe with the exception of using Myer's lemon instead of lime. The taste was very refreshing and not too sweet at all. I normally do not like sweet drinks and this was perfect! Thank you for posting this wonderful drink!"
"I muddled the sugar, mint and lime wedges together i my glass. Then added the ice, guava juice and rum. Topped with seltzer and lime. Tasted at this point and then decided to add a touch of grenadine for sweetness and color. A nice twist of the Cuban mojito like this Recipe #66947 ."
"Absolutely wonderful! I love this combination of lime and mint with the guava nectar! I used a simple syrup to replace the sugar and did not need the club soda ;) Thank you for this wonderful recipe, Mama's Kitchen!"
" very nice drink "
