If you have traveled to Hawaii, you probably have tried POG. POG juice is a delicious blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava juice that screams tropical. Wait until you try my POG Cocktail; it is the perfect way to celebrate happy hour.
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. We would head out to the pool each morning and enjoy POG with our breakfast.
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 finding passion fruit juice was hard. Orange juice is everywhere, and guava juice is fairly easy to find in cans....but passion fruit juice is elusive.
My son loved this guava passion fruit drink so much that he often had several glasses! I include both the non-alcoholic and adult cocktail versions so everyone can enjoy this delicious juice blend.

This fruity drink is so easy to make. I am going to break the recipe down into the adult version and the mocktail version. This drink recipe will make 2 juices or two fruity cocktails.
Recipe step-by-step directions:
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 Kerns in a can. The refrigerated section of your grocery may have fresh guava juice as well.
Add the Torani Passion Fruit Syrup.
Make POG as a mocktail.
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.
Add 1 ounce of dark rum floated on top of the drink to make this a POG cocktail even better. Do not stir in the dark rum. Enjoy!!

Tips and Recipe FAQ:
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.
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!!
POG juice is healthy, but even healthy juice has a lot of sugar. I always say to enjoy POG, but don't overdo it.
A few brands sell POG, including Sun Tropics, Hawaiin Sun, and Aloha.
