My family just returned from San Martin/Sint Maarten... and with them they brought perhaps one of the finest liquers you can get in the islands... Guavaberry Liquer. I don't know if anyone else has tried this stuff before, but it has been a nice little treat for my friends and I over the last few years.
Well, it appears you can get it here in the States through their website.
Oh, they also make a kick ass Passion fruit liquer (rum based) that I substitute for the syrup.
Just thought I would let you know.

Whoah... I remember that stuff! Heck, I still have an untouched bottle tucked in the back of my bar.
I had some when I was in St. Marten several years ago. It was great, you walk in to a store and they would pour you mini shots or make mini-drinks for you to "test" the product. You gotta love a liquor store where you can sample anything they have. A group of us went in to one shop, got schnockered on "samples", then each walked away with several bottle a piece.
Kind of like wine tasting, but a little more hard core!
Thanks for reminding me about the Guavaberry. I'll have to dig it out and make some Guavaberry-coladas next time I have friends over.

I bought a bottle of the stuff too.
My wife an I were on our honeymoon, we walked by and they handed us a little cup of Guavaberry Colada.
So we bought a bottle.
That was one yummy drink, I see it is listed first in the recipie section.
