They go by many names - but I believe they're most known in the states as guavasteen.

For cocktails, i'd let them get really ripe, then muddle/juice them with some pineapple, passion fruit juice, dark rum and a dash or two of my summer favorite - Bittermen's Tiki Bitters - for a killer rum punch!

Ack! Answered without reading all the way through! Scatterbrained today.

For gin, i'd muddle with some sugar, and shake shake shake - no guarantees though, it might be a total miss!

I was surprised to find out that Boston's Drink bar uses maple syrup with gin cocktails a lot -- maybe that would be the missing link.

It's a fruit, also called pineapple guava. It grows well in coastal Southern California. They're delicious!

Judging from the photographs of the leaves & flowers, they're definitely a variety of guava..
