Hurricane Cocktail Drink Recipe

hurricane drink cocktailEveryone has an opinion on how to make a Hurricane. Here is my favorite way. If you never had one, it is a cross between rum and super sweet. The cocktails invention is credited to Pat O’Brien, a Tavern Owner in New Orleans. He had an excessive amount of undesirable Rum and needed to come up with a drink to get rid of it. It became popular and is well known in the French Quarter.

  • .5 oz dark rum

  • 2 oz passion fruit juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon grenadine syrup

Add ice, shake it up, & serve with tropical fruit slices of your choice.
