The Art of Having Fun

Sips & Snacks: Pink Flamingo Guava Flow

We’re known to be a team that loves our cocktails, and today we’re back with an extra special (and extra boozy) recipe for you all. Inspired by the latest GM releases that just hit the shop this week—ahem, coasters AND large acrylic trays!—we couldn’t help but whip up a quick cocktail full of all our favorite tropical flavors. We’ll use any excuse for a quick getaway to the islands (even if it’s only for a sip), and we have to say, this one is really doing the job.

With that said, what’s more tropical than notes of guava and coconut, all tied up in a pretty pink drink? We’ll give you a hint: nothing! That’s why we created this Pink Flamingo Guava Flow, straight from the kitchen of Gray Malin. With traces of some of our favorite drinks (like the classic Piña Colada and it’s strawberry flavored counterpart, the Lava Flow), this cocktail is pretty much the best of all worlds. Keep scrolling to see how you can recreate this equally pretty and delicious drink at home…

Did we mention we highly recommend serving it up on our new island-clad coasters and trays? You’ll be feeling that island breeze in no time…

  • 4 cups guava juice
  • 1/4 cup pineapple, diced

Instructions:

  1. Pour all ingredients into a blender, adding the liquid first, then the fruit, then the ice on the top. Blend until thoroughly mixed, and carefully pour into four glasses.
  2. For the garnish, cut small wedges of fresh pineapple, with a notch in them to hang easily on the side of each drink. Top your cocktails off with whatever other pretty touches your heart desires! We opted for maraschino cherries, and edible flowers for an especially tropical look.
  3. Enjoy!
