Rose Sangria with Guava & Pineapple

I've been so busy lately that my usual routine of viewing and commenting on the 100+ food blogs I subscribe to has been spotty. However, I have been able to check up on my fave food blogs last week. But when I did, I'm happy I came across the following cocktail recipe which I found on Brianna's blog, Oishi. It captured the sweet tropical flavors of guava and pineapple... and I loved the pink color! I did adapt the recipe measurements only because it was easier for me to measure out things in cups. For the nectars, I picked them up at a local ethnic market where they are sold in 64 oz containers. Definitely give this cocktail a try for your next summer party!

  1. It's such a beautiful color, isn't it? I'm really glad you enjoyed it!! I can't wait to see the rest of your menu from your night!

  2. Joelen, is pineapple nectar the same as regular pineapple juice?

  3. this looks so pretty and sounds delicious!

  4. Wow good recipe. Guava is humble looking fruit. I find guava very tasty. It is good for health. It is rich in vitamin C. It is great for eyes and heart, skin, hair. It also helps for combating colon and prostate cancer and has many other benefits.
