A shot of jammy Chambord brings out the strawberry scent of guava -- and there’s still a touch of lime juice to keep this margarita from being cloying. It’s a seasonal cocktail contradiction, cozy and refreshing at the same time, garnished with a fresh, fragrant guava slice dangling from the sugared rim.

From the story: Always sunny margaritas


Run a lime wedge around the rim of four glasses and dip into sugar. Set aside.


Combine 6 ounces guava nectar, 1 ounce lime juice, 1 ounce Chambord and 2 1/2 ounces tequila in a cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled. Strain into two ice-filled, sugar-rimmed glasses.


Garnish with a guava slice. Repeat to make two more cocktails.

Guava nectar is available at select supermarkets.
