Mauna Lai is a tropical fruit drink offered by Ocean Spray, the name of which is derived from the Hawaiian phrase for “tranquil mountain.” The primary fruit utilized to make Mauna Lai is the guava, which comes from an evergreen shrub native to tropical areas of the Americas. Usually round or pear-shaped, the guava has a distinct smell when ripe and red, pink, or white flesh. Guavas are popular in jams and jellies as well as juices and contain significant quantities of vitamins A, B, and C. Though delicious alone, Mauna Lai is often utilized as a mixer for alcoholic drinks and can be used to make such popular concoctions as the mai tai.
