Capture the Spirit of New Orleans: A Hurricane Cocktail Recipe

The Hurricane is a vibrant and flavorful rum cocktail, offering a taste of the tropics in every sip. Here's what you'll need to create this iconic New Orleans beverage:

Ingredients:

2 ounces light rum

2 ounces dark rum (or additional light rum)

1 ounce passion fruit juice (or passion fruit puree)

1 ounce orange juice

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons grenadine

Orange slice (for garnish)

Maraschino cherry (for garnish)

Bacardi Superior Rum 1 0L

Instructions:

You'll need a hurricane glass (or a large highball glass), a jigger (optional) for measuring, a bar spoon, and a chopstick (or similar tool) for layering.

Pack a hurricane glass or a large highball glass with ice cubes.

Using a jigger or measuring spoons, add the light rum, dark rum (or additional light rum), passion fruit juice, orange juice, and lime juice to a separate container (shaker or pitcher optional). If you don't have a shaker, simply stir the ingredients together in the container.

Strain the rum mixture over the ice in the hurricane glass.

Slowly pour the remaining splash of grenadine down the chopstick (or similar tool) held close to the side of the glass. This will create a beautiful red layer at the bottom of the drink.

Garnish with a maraschino cherry and an orange slice. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your taste of the tropics!

Tips:

Adjust the rum proportions to your preference. You can use all light rum or a combination of light and dark rum for a deeper flavor profile.

If you don't have fresh juices, you can substitute them with high-quality store-bought ones. However, fresh juices will provide the best flavor.

Get creative with garnishes! You can also use a pineapple wedge or a sprig of mint for a tropical touch.

For a sweeter drink, add a bit more grenadine or a simple syrup drizzle.

The Hurricane is a fun and festive cocktail, perfect for poolside gatherings or enjoying a taste of New Orleans at home. So crank up some lively music, whip up a Hurricane, and let the good times roll!
