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.

When 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. If you love creative cocktails, you will love some of these Fancy Drink Ideas.

Next is guava juice. This can be difficult to find, but I found this can of Kerns guava juice. The refrigerated section of your grocery store may also have fresh guava juice.

Add the passion fruit syrup.

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!!

    Anything with orange juice is my kind of drink. I love the taste whether it is a simple drink or if it has multiple flavors in it.

  2. I have never been to Hawaii but I am ready for this drink. I also cannot understand why Passion fruit juice is so difficult to find. Thak you for the hint, I will look for Torani.

    1. The passion fruit syrup helps a lot because it is the only fruit juice we can’t find here.

  3. I love Torani syrup! I used to get Italian sodas all the time before I drank coffee and their syrups always made the best ones. And your recipe sounds delicious – I’ll have to try it!

  4. I’ve never tried POG juice but it does sound delicious! I particularly like the sound of your grown-up version!

  5. We love passion fruit and guava, love to eat fresh guava with a little salt and chilli powder:) This POG drink looks so refreshing!

  6. POG juice is one of the things I missed the most after we returned from our trip to Maui. Like you, I searched our grocery stores to find the ingredients, but with no luck! I can’t wait to try your POG cocktail!

    Did you try the Maui Gold Pineapples when you were in Hawaii? With plum powder on them? Those are two other things I wish I could find on the mainland.

    Oh, and if you’re looking for a non-alcoholic POG juice recipe, I have one on my blog. I finally found a passionfruit juice blend at World Market that we enjoy.

    Sharing your post on Pinterest and my Facebook page. Thanks for taking me back to Hawaii!

    1. I do remember the pineapples…they are so incredibly sweet. Glad to bring back some memories, thank you so much for the shares 🙂

  7. I grew up drinking POG juice!! (In upstate New York, oddly enough!) I love this recipe and will definitely be trying these at home! #client
