If we were simply asking "Is the juice theirs", we would say המיץ שלהן? or האם המיץ שלהן?; however since we are asking "Is *this* their juice", we say זה המיץ שלהן? or האם זה המיץ שלהן.
Knowing how to correctly use זה in such contexts can be a little tricky. It depends on what you want to emphasise. For instance, if we wanted to ask "Is this juice *theirs*?" we would say המיץ הזה שלהן?, giving the juice a definite article.
