White rum, orange liqueur, guava and lime combine to take our minds off the winter chill.

AS winter proper descends on us, a taste of warmer climes is a more than welcome diversion.

Old San Juan

Serves 1

50ml guava puree – I use Funkin
40ml quality white rum – I use good old Bacardi
10ml orange liqueur – I use Bols
20ml fresh lime juice
1 slice dried lime
(from Middle Eastern food stores), optional

Put all the liquids in a shaker with plenty of large ice cubes.

Shake well, then strain into a champagne saucer.

Garnish with the slice of dried lime, if using, and serve.
