Après ski week, drinks edition…I can attest to the beauty of this drink after a long day of skiing or maybe just in your apartment on a Sunday afternoon. I may or may not be on my 5th one right now. The attached photo is legit in front of Chef John’s ski house. His family loves this drink and so will you. -ts
Chef John says: I know it looks like a boat drink but somehow my family has been able to convert it into an après ski drank. We love our booze and will stop at nothing to make every drink appropriate for every occasion, especially drinks this good. The drink’s origins are authentic boat drink, being crafted by my dad down in the Virgin Islands roughly ten years ago. However, these days we pour these little guys with a heavy hand after a hard day of skiing. Proceed with caution though, the guava masks the rum almost a little too well. Let’s get weird.
Kern’s Nectar Guava Juice
Mount Gay Rum
(I highly suggest using these brands as I’ve mixed and matched a lot and found these to be the best combo)
- Fill tall glass with ice to the top. Mix equal parts guava juice and rum into tall glass of ice. Leave about one inch of room at top to add a floater of rum for a little extra kick.
