    For the Guava Syrup
    1/3
    cup
    sugar
    2
    guavas
    1
    Mexican lime, cut in half
    For the Cocktail
    1
    bottle
    Spanish cava, chilled
    Directions
    Step 1
    Place 1/2 cups water and sugar in a 1 qt saucepan.
    Step 2
    Stir to combine well, and heat over medium high heat until boiling. Add the guava slices and lime halves, and lower to a simmer for 5 minutes. Line a glass pie plate with parchment paper. Using a slotted spoon, remove the guava slices from the hot syrup, and place on the parchment paper. Remove and discard the lime halves. Do not discard syrup.
    Step 3
    Dry off any extra moisture from the guava slices using a paper towel. Place the pie plate in the freezer, and freeze the guava slices until ready to use, at least 1 hour in advance. Chill the reserved syrup in the refrigerator.
    Step 4
    Pour about 1 oz of the chilled syrup in a champagne flute, and add a few slices of the frozen guava. Fill the glass with the chilled cava, and serve.
