If you have traveled to Hawaii, you probably have tried POG.
POG is a delicious blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava juice that just screams tropical.
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 it so much, he often had several glasses!
Orange Juice and Guava Juice
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.
Passion Fruit Juice
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! I headed over to my local Walmart because they have a ton of Torani syrups in the tea section of the store.
They had all of the summer flavors including passion fruit, raspberry, and peach! Torani syrups are made with simple ingredients including cane sugar and natural flavors.
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.
Next is the guava juice. This can be difficult to find, but my Walmart had this in a can.
Add the Torani Passion Fruit Syrup…it is so good! I love the easy pour spot on the bottles of Torani. This helps prevent spills.
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.
Dip the rim of the glass in more passion fruit syrup, then dip in sugar. I used white and orange sugar to make it fun.
For adults, add 2 ounces of rum for each drink. Stir to mix.
To make this a POG cocktail, add 1 ounce of dark rum floated on top of the drink. Do not stir in the dark rum. Finally, enjoy!!
