Guava Juice Drinks with Prosecco

Ingredients for making the prosecco and guava brunch cocktail.

Brunch cocktails

You know what they say about brunch don’t you?

It’s a socially acceptable excuse for day-drinking.

I concur. There’s nothing more fun than sipping a cocktail at 10:30 in the morning under the guise of an entertaining mid-morning meal that spans breakfast and lunch.

This brunch cocktail is a tropical, rosy blend of sparkling wine, rum and guava and tangerine.

Flavors will go equally well with a baked french toast or crab quiche as they will with a bevy of Cinnamon Raisin Rolls, bacon and eggs. This prosecco and guava drink is fizzy, balanced and smooth, reminding me of a Hawaiian mimosa.


  • Guava Nectar– I used Kern’s
  • Fresh Tangerine Juice – fresh squeezed from real fruit.
  • Simple Syrup – Use my homemade recipe (super-easy) or store-bought.
  • Rum – I used Mount Gay, but you can use your favorites.
  • Sparkling Wine – Don’t use fancy champagne, just a drinkable bubbly, prosecco, cava, or other sparkling wine.

The key to this drink is ensuring the juices, and sparkling wine is well chilled before assembling. I usually put them in the refrigerator the night before.

Most classic champagne cocktails for brunch menus start with orange juice and/or grapefruit juice. I enjoy both, but for this mid-morning sipper, I opted for fresh tangerine juice.

Why tangerine juice?

We all love a good glass of OJ, but tangerines to me are even more juicy, tangy and sweet. The flavor is both puckery and refreshing and adds extra oomph to this brunch cocktail.

I know — tangerine juice isn’t readily sold in stores, but tangerines are, and two tangerines will yield about 1/4 cup of juice. Since this brunch cocktail doesn’t require much juice, use your lemon juicer to squeeze what you need.

Classic champagne cocktails… with rum?

Rum may not be the first thing you think of for a brunch cocktail, but just a skosh of its tropical essence kicks this drink into island time. You know what I’m talking about. You don’t need to use a really good rum for this, either. Save your Martinique Rhum Agricole for a classic ‘Ti Punch”.

Tangerine juice and guava nectar

It’s tough to juice a guava. If you’ve seen any of my guava posts like this puree or this guava jam, you’ll notice that guavas aren’t the type of fruit that you just squeeze for juice like you can with tangerines, oranges, etc. However, good guava nectar is available in most stores and adds an island perfume to this classic champagne cocktail and balances the tang of the tangerine juice. I’ve also added a bit of simple syrup to to the blend. You wouldn’t think this brunch cocktail would need more sugar because of the tangerine and guava juices, but I’ve found that just a hint of simple syrup balances all the flavors. If you prefer a drier drink, you can skip it (or add it later).

Skip the champagne… Use sparkling wine

I’ll be honest, I’ve NEVER used real champagne for brunch cocktails, primarily because they’re mixed with fruit juices and if I’ve got a good French champagne, I don’t want to cut it with other flavors. Sparkling wine, however, is another story. I usually stick to a $10-12 bottle of prosecco, cava, or California sparkling wine for this type of drink. The one I’m pouring here is a Crémant De Bourgogne from Trader Joe’s. It runs around $10.
