As many of you already know, I’ve been in Hawaii the last couple weeks. Some friends of ours decided to get married on Maui and we just had to go.

Honestly, I wish more of my friends would get married in Hawaii… If you have wedding plans in some tropical paradise and are looking for a matron-of-honor, I’m your girl.

POG Punch Hawaiian Cocktail

Thanks to my wonderful parents, the kids stayed home and my hubby and I had some desperately needed alone time. Here are some of the beautiful views we experienced in a calm child-free environment.

One of our goals was to take in as much local food as humanly possible. (Serious resolutions coming in January.) Although we had plenty of hoity-toity spaghetti-strap dinners, we also hit all the dives known to draw locals.

It seems like every restaurant in Hawaii serves a beverage called POG. That is, Passion Fruit-Orange-Guava juice, for us mainlanders. After tasting POG juice, my mind was an explosion of ideas. Of course it tastes great on it’s own, but POG could be more. So much more.

You can buy premixed POG on every island in Hawaii, but mainlanders will most likely have to mix it themselves.

POG Juice: 2 parts Passion Fruit Juice, 2 parts Pink Guava Nectar, 1 part Orange Juice.

POG Punch Hawaiian Cocktail

To turn this exotic fruity beverage into the perfect holiday punch, I simply added Malibu Rum (coconut flavored) and champagne. For a kiddie cocktail you could add ginger ale or club soda.

This POG Punch Hawaiian Cocktail is a new favorite in our house and a sure hit at our Christmas gathering. Forget “Let it Snow,” we sang “Mele Kalikimaka” all evening long!

  3. I love your recipes and sav most of them on my Pinterest.

    I love cocktails but due to my blood thinner medicine I don’t drink alcohol and I would appreciate if you’d make recipes for non-alcoholic drinks.

    Thank you for a great website which I almost visit daily :)

    Hugs from Denmark (Scandinavia)

  7. What a fun cocktail :) And gorgeous travel photos! Looks like you had a great time.

  8. Wow!! How long were you there? I used to live in Hawaii in the early 90’s. What a wonderful way to spend time with hubby. Glad you had fun, and I look forward to more vacation posts soon.

  9. That looks like such a perfectly refreshing drink :)

  10. OH my gosh did I ever need a dose a beautiful sunshine right now! How gorgeous!

  11. I’m getting old … killed too many brain cells … but somehow, despite living in Hawaii for three years, I forgot all about POG.

    What’s the deal with POG caps? Or, was the deal? There was a certain brand of POG juice that came in a bottle with a special cap, maybe something silly written inside it. And kids would collect them. Or use them for checkers or something. Going to have to look that up.

    Anyhoo, thanks for giving my brain a kick start this morning. Cheers and happy holidays!!

  12. Now I want to go to Hawaii. Gorgeous pictures!!

  13. Stunning clicks!
    The drink looks salivating too.

  14. Delicious! Those pictures look stunning! Glad you’re getting a little QT with your husband and having a fabulous trip.

  15. What a wonderful place for a get away. I would love to go there someday. This drink looks fantastic and as always your pictures are terrific. We have a pimento cheese quiche appetizer this week. Delcious. Come over and visit. Merry Christmas!

  16. POG sounds delicious and I’m SO glad you got to go to Hawaii! I’ve not been there since I was a youngster, but it’s an amazing place! I agree – more friends SHOULD get married there!

  17. How many times can I say “Awesome” in one comment. Geesh I am tired ;)

  18. How spectacular! All of this, the cocktail and your awesome trip. That rainbow is awesome!

  19. I don’t know what I’m salivating more for…the drink or the trip! Both look incredible. So glad you had a good time. So glad you returned with more wonderful recipes to share!

  20. Seems like you had a wonderful in Hawaii :) The pinch absolutely great, Sommer! Sending you lots of hugs <3

  21. Okay how is it that I’ve been to Hawaii a couple times already and do not remember POG juice?! Maybe that’s a good reason to plan a trip back? ;-)

  22. This looks wonderful! So sunny and tropical. I need a Hawaiian cocktial – it is freezing here!

  23. Can I just tell you how excited I am that you shared this!? I had roommates from the islands and we drank this ALL the time! I haven’t had in years. Gotta go make some with kalua pig and poi!

  24. That does look relaxing. I could see myself in a hammock with a POG and watching the ocean waves.

  25. hello & yum, it looks so super refreshing.

  26. YUM-O!!! Perfect getaway! I need a vacay soon and Hawaii sounds too good :)

  27. What a great combination of flavors!!

  28. Oh i love that stuff – we go to Hawaii every year just to break up the winter, and it is an easy hop from Seattle. Usually go to the Big Island. This year we went early in Oct. since i am due in 7 weeks. Time is flying by.

  29. This is lovely, the pictures are such a breath of fresh air with all the Christmas posts right now. I’ve actually had this drink while there years ago and it’s really good. They also made a blue drink that tasted a little like koolaid so I got a little carried away with it.

  30. Awesome! Nothing like a good holiday cocktail!

  31. Hawaii is one of my favorite places – we’ve been fortunate enough to have visited there the last two summers. You can’t beat the weather and the scenery – and POG!

  32. I want friends who get married in Hawaii too. I also want me some POG. Just saying it makes me smile. I can’t imagine what the punch would do. :)

  33. Thats is surely a lovely place to go to, especially with a loved one and the punch fits in perfect.

  34. That is a lovely drink and the views from your trip are breath taking!

  35. What a wonderful adventure! Glad you had a good safe trip and enjoyed the local flavor. January is coming and I’m ready for a serious diet – did you have any macadamia nut pie while on the island? Your photos are terrific and this recipe sounds yummy!

  36. Yum! Put this in an IV and I’m set :P
