When we last went to Maui, we became addicted to a fruit juice blend that was served. It is simply orange juice, guava juice, and passion fruit juice. Each morning we would head out to the pool and enjoy POG with our breakfast.
My son loved this guava passion fruit drink so much, he often had several glasses! I include both the non-alcoholic version, and an adult cocktail version so everyone can enjoy this delicious juice blend.
As soon as we came home, I searched everywhere for this tropical juice. None of our local stores carried it. We wanted to make our own, but it was so hard to find passion fruit juice. Orange juice is everywhere, guava juice is fairly easy to find in cans....but passion fruit juice is elusive.
What juices are in POG?
After scouring stores for the ingredients, we almost gave up. We found everything except passion fruit juice! I am not sure why passion fruit juice is so hard to find. It is pink and has a unique sweet taste that has no comparison.
Luckily, Torani has a new flavor that will make it possible to have POG again! You guessed it, passion fruit!! I decided to recreate it for our kids and make a special "grown-up" version of our favorite tropical drink.
When I heard Torani came out with a passion fruit syrup, I was so excited! Torani syrups are perfect for cocktails and mocktails!!
This fruity drink is so easy to make. I am going to break the recipe down by the adult version, and the mocktail version. This drink recipe will make 2 juices or two fruity cocktails.
There are going to be a lot of pictures, and for that, I apologize...this was a fun drink to make 🙂 First add the orange juice. Feel free to use any brand with or without pulp.
Next is the guava juice. This can be difficult to find, but I found this guava juice by Kern's in a can. The refrigerated section of your grocery may have fresh guava juice as well.
Add the Torani Passion Fruit Syrup.
That is all you need for this fruity mocktail version. Your kid will love this fruity drink. Keep reading to make this drink for adults.
If you want to add a fancy rim...Dip the rim of the glass in more passion fruit syrup, then dip in colored sugar. I used white and orange sugar to make it fun.
POG for adults:
For adults, add 2 ounces of rum for each drink. Pour in the POG juice then stir to mix.
To make this a POG cocktail even better, add 1 ounce of dark rum floated on top of the drink. Do not stir in the dark rum. Enjoy!!
Where you buy POG juice?
I was so excited to learn our grocery store, Nob Hill owned by Raley's, has pog juice!! It is in a red container in the juice section of the store!!
Is POG juice healthy?
POG juice is healthy, but even healthy juice has a lot of sugar. I always say to enjoy POG, but don't overdo it.
