Several classic Virgin Islands ‘scratch’ bands recorded versions of the late composer Bill La Motta’s “Guaveberry Song.” A Christmastime favorite, lyrics repeat the lines: “Good Mornin, Good Mornin, ah come fo’ me Guavaberry; Good Mornin, Good Mornin to you and all your family.” The song honors the tradition of serving Guavaberry liqueur during the holidays. Grown in several Caribbean islands, Guavaberry trees bear small fruit, about the size of a blueberry. Related to the clove and eucalyptus, the taste is bittersweet. Guavaberry liqueur is made by blending guavaberries, rum and sugar
