This tropical drink can be a sexy choice for your next private luau with the boyfriend, or super fun to place in shareable scorpion bowls around a few tables at the backyard bbq for guests to sip together. Think of this Trader Vic’s inspired cocktail for your next Hawaiian themed party.
POG is a tropical style juice drink created by the Hawaiian Haleakala Dairy in the 1970′s. It is a blend of passionfruit, orange and guava fruit juices, and using the first letter in each fruit, it’s been called P.O.G. POG is still produced today in Hawaii and available in several sizes in local Hawaiian stores.
This version of POG uses Pineapple in place of Passionfruit, and is made into a delicious adult drink using Skyy Infusion Pineapple vodka.
Hawaiian Luau POG Punch

- 2 oz Skyy Infusion Pineapple vodka
- 2 oz freshly squeezed orange juice
- about 1/4 cup Guava Puree, thawed if necessary
- pineapple wedges, for garnish
- orchid flowers, for garnish
Directions: Combine the vodka, orange juice and thawed guava puree in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a scorpion bowl. Garnish with an orchid flower and pineapple wedge. Add straws and enjoy!
Guava puree can sometimes be hard to find, check your grocer’s freezer section in the frozen fruit area. Many supermarkets are now stocking pureed fruit in their freezers, as making homemade ice cream, gelato, sorbet and exotic tropical cocktails has increased in popularity. If you’re not finding guava puree at your neighborhood market, try a specialty grocery store, like a Mexican, Latin or Asian market.
We’ve also found a great selection of fruit purees online, however because they are frozen goods, your package must be shipped overnight, resulting in at least a $30 shipping charge. Here’s the link to the selection by The Perfect Puree of Napa Valley. The quality is amazing, and you can select 4 different puree flavors to ship for the same price.
