If you've ever been to New Orleans you'll certainly remember the Hurricane (or maybe not-hahahaha!) It is a ritual of the French Quarter to have the speciality drink "the Hurricane" at Pat O'Briens. It is very sweet and deceivingly strong. (I can only drink one...or two!)
Since today is Mardi Gras, I think it ever so appropriate to make Hurricanes. Enjoy!
2 ounces of light rum
2 ounces of dark rum
2 ounces of grenadine
1 ounce of simple syrup
Juice of two limes
2 ounces of orange juice
Wedge of orange, for garnish
Cherries, for garnish
Mix everything in a shaker. Fill a hurricane glass half full of ice - crushed ice is great. Pour mixture on top and top off with extra ice; garnish with an orange slice and some cherries. Drink responsibly. Enjoy.
*If you want to make it a bit easier, use Hawaiian Punch in lieu of Grenadine.
Thank you Deep South Dish for the recipe. xox lisA fRosT
