Samoa #1

I found this recipe for Guava Punch, and it sounds incredible. I don't drink guava juice very much because it's expensive and hard to find, but I found some in the middle-eastern section of the market, so I knew it was fate. In Samoa, copious amounts of guava are eaten raw, as well as pineapple, but it's hard to find fresh, whole guava here, so this punch combines the best of those 2 fruits with some others.

Sparkling Guava Punch

2 cups guava juice
1 cup pineapple juice
½ cup orange juice
1 tbsp. lemon juice
½ cup sugar (omitted)
1 tsp. orange zest
3 ½ cups ginger ale (I used diet)
Lime for garnish

Combine the juices and sugar, chill. Before serving, fill pitcher withice, pour in juices, zest, and ginger ale. Stir to combine. Garnishglasses with lime slices.
*This would be amazing for cocktail time mixed with a little pineapple rum!!!
