Family Features) - From pomegranate juice to mango sorbet, it is easier than ever to find exotic tropical fruits and flavors in your grocery aisles. From decadent desserts to creative summer cocktails, these exotic flavors are making a big splash in mainstream food and beverage products.
Add one more exciting taste to the list - guava. Just in time for summer, Cruzan, the world's most award-winning rum, is introducing the first guava-flavored rum to the U.S. With a distinct character of fresh guava, tropical fruits and fresh berries, Cruzan Guava is a rich, smooth and fruity spirit.
Guava originally gained popularity in Latin America where the fruit is found in abundance, and has quickly gained popularity in the U.S., where it is poised to be the next mainstream tropical flavor.
If you can't escape to the islands this year, bring the island experience to you with a guava-inspired menu. Enjoy a spicy guava-lime shrimp salad or add a tropical twist to the classic mojito by adding a splash of Cruzan Guava.
Whether you're looking for a way to spice up a summer party or simply want to escape with a taste of the islands, guava is a delicious way to go.
