The spicy notes of ginger and pepper and the tangy tones of lemon juice make this guava drink a super hit! Unlike the common guava juices that are overwhelmingly sweet, this one has a well-balanced and peppy flavour due to the innovative combination of ingredients. Cooking the guava with sugar softens the fruit and also makes it taste richer. Despite the dash of ginger, the Spicy Guava Drink will be pleasing to kids too, due to the innate sweetness and creaminess of guavas.

Now you don't need to buy a tetra pack if you want to have the guava juice. This drink has an actual guava taste without using any artificial flavours. The little pepper powder makes a difference in the taste, so add it without fail. Also add salt in proper quantity, otherwise it will taste bland.
