  • guava 25g, sliced, or use Boiron guava purée, 25ml
  • tequila (we use Calle 23) 50ml
  • agave syrup 15ml

  • guava juice 25ml
  • chilli powder a pinch, plus extra for the rim
  • Himalayan pink salt or sea salt flakes a pinch, plus extra for the rim


  • Step 1

    Put the sliced guava into a cocktail shaker and mash lightly with a muddler. Add the tequila, agave syrup, lime juice, guava juice, chilli powder and salt.

  • Step 2

    Fill a shaker with ice. Put a mixing glass over the cocktail shaker, hold together firmly and shake back and forth 10-15 times.

  • Step 3

    Mix together a few pinches of chilli powder and salt on a plate.

  • Step 4

    Run a lime wedge around the rim of a rock glass and dip the glass into the chilli mixture (rim just half the glass if you don’t want it too spicy). Strain the cocktail into the lined rock glass filled with ice.
