Jack N’ Ginger’s Passion Punch

Jack N’ Ginger’s Passion Punch


Author Notes: This sneaky punch is inspired by POG – Passion Orange Guava – a popular tropical fruit juice blend first bottled by Haleakala Dairy in the 1970’s. Using grapefruit instead of orange gives the punch a tasty bitter edge, while ginger beer complements the dark character of the whiskey. Passion fruit and guava infuses some of my favorite island flavors and keeps you going back for more, think of this as a tropical twist to ring in the New Year! gingerroot

Makes: 8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups Passion Fruit Nectar, chilled
  • 2 cups Guava Nectar, chilled (can substitute frozen guava nectar concentrate, see note below)
  • 1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice, strained
  • 1 bottle (12 oz) Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew Ginger Beer, chilled
  • 2 cups Jack Daniel's whiskey
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Add ingredients in a large punch bowl. Stir to combine. Add ice cubes if desired. Serve and Enjoy!
  2. Note: If using frozen guava nectar concentrate, thaw can briefly by placing in a container with cold water. Open can, slide frozen concentrate on to a plate and slice. Add slices to punch and stir until combined.

Thanks, Lori! To my palate, ginger beer has a much spicier, stronger ginger flavor than ginger ale. I had never actually looked at the Reed's bottle until you just asked, but it is fresh ginger root mixed with sugar, filtered water, lemon, lime, spices and pineapple.

Like a Dark and Stormy (my FAVORITE drink) except with whiskey and fruit juice. Just lovely.

Thank you, Niknud! I love a good Dark and Stormy, and what I love about this is the passion fruit, which adds an interesting counterpoint to the darker, spicy flavors of the punch.

Yes! Very tropical indeed! A cup of this and it'll be very easy to pretend it's not 41 degrees outside. ;)

Thanks, mrslarkin! Mind over matter, I love it - kind of like me enjoying a hot Apple pie toddy and pretend it's not 80 degrees out. Cheers! I'll drink to that.
