New Drink Recipe: The Jumpin’ POG

I am in Honolulu, Hawaii as I write this. Came back to the house we rented and I wanted some booze. Didn’t feel like drinking bourbon straight up because it was a hot day, so I experimented with mixing some Passion-Orange-Guava juice (which is a staple here in the islands) with some bourbon. I figured the sweetness of the bourbon would complement the juice, and I was not mistaken. So easy to make:

1 shot decent¬†bourbon (I used Jefferson’s)
8 oz. POG
Pineapple wedge
Sprig of mint

Fill a double rocks glass with ice. Pour bourbon over the ice. Top off with POG and stir. Garnish with pineapple or tropical fruit wedge and a sprig of mint.

Admittedly, I didn’t have either garnish on hand, but you have to garnish with something and my son and I who drank one with me agreed that mint would be a great garnish with this. OMG! It’s delicious and SO refreshing on a hot day!
