Hurricane Cocktail Recipe

Cocktails with subtlety are not in the Hurricane’s wheelhouse. This cocktail, introduced at Pat O’Brien’s in New Orleans in the early 1940s, has been packing a punch ever since. Its double serving of rum and suite of juices and sweeteners have made it a worldwide phenomenon. This cocktail is made with two types of rum, lime juice, orange juice, passion fruit puree, grenadine, simple syrup, and lime juice. This drink is sweet, fruity, and boozy, so it fits the bill for an excellent party beverage. It has been remade more than a few times throughout the years, like many classic cocktails. Hurricanes began as a three-ingredient recipe that was simple and straightforward. Unlike most recipes, this one requires more time and effort, but it has an excellent flavor balance.
