Cuban Sunset

Cuban Sunset created by loof751

A 'coctel' in old Havana was a pre-dinner cocktail party with finger food and a variety of rum drinks. Bacardi white rum had its birth in Cuba, so it is a natural pairing with the nectar of the guava or 'guayaba', one of the most popular and most widely used fruits in the Cuban culture. From "The Florida Keys Cookbook" and posted for ZWT5.

    This is a good drink....almost too good! Sweet and tropical and goes down so smooth. Really liked the bubbly soda in this too. Thanks for posting the recipe!

    I used pink lemonade. I did it only for 2 cocktails. I omitted the grenadine (and it would have been too sweet). It was very refreshing. But next time I may try to add more rum. Thanks FloridaNative :) Made for PAC Spring 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
