POG Martini, Hulu Mama

I do have to say... this martini would look a WHOLE look better with a beach and a palm tree as the background.

I always wondered why there wasn't a POG martini.
It's like the national drink of Hawaii.  Why not do more with it?
I remember when it was a novelty, something you never ever got on the mainland.
Now you can buy POG (Passion, Orange Guava) at any grocery store.
So... why not a martini?
There is a drink called "a Bahama Mama" which is essentially this drink below with a combination of Orange and Pineapple juices.
But, I'm talking HAWAII, therefore I have named this the Hulu Mama "POG" Martini.

of whatever makes your hips sway slowly from side to side.

Makes one large martini

1 oz Coconut Rum, like Malibu
1/2 oz Banana Liqueur
1 oz Spiced Rum
4 oz. POG (Passion, Orange, Guava juice)
1 teaspoon Grenadine

Combine all the ingredients and mix them in a cocktail shaker. 
Serve in a martini glass. 
Garnish with Orange and/or Pineapple wedge & a Maraschino Cherry 
As you can see... I didn't have any garnish, but it didn't stop me from talking about it.

Need some more inspiration for the coming Summer, or a kick off to a tropical vacation?
