If you are looking for a cool and refreshing cocktail, you’ve found it. Made with only four ingredients, this is like a simple yet sophisticated Rum Runner. It’s the cocktail I go for on a breezy summer day when the sun is setting. If you cannot find guava juice, substitute cranberry juice.


  1. Ice
  2. 2 oz. guava juice
  3. 2 oz. light rum
  4. 1 oz. fresh lime juice
  5. Sparkling water or club soda
  6. 1 lime wedge


  1. Fill a tall glass with ice and set it aside.
  2. Place a handful of ice in a cocktail shaker and add the guava juice, rum, and lime juice, and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds.
  3. Strain the cocktail into the glass of ice and top with sparkling water or club soda.
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
