A survey reported that 95% of all first-time tourists to New Orleans go to Pat O’Brien’s. I did, too.
Founded in 1933, this bar is home to the Hurricane cocktail. Potent, sweet and oddly popular, the mixes are available for purchase all over town.
Hurricane sans mix:
– 2 oz light rum
– 2 oz dark rum
– 2 oz passion fruit juice
– 1 oz orange juice
– 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
– 1 tbsp simple syrup
– 1 tbsp grenadine
– Garnish: orange slice and cherry
Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a hurricane glass (shaped after a hurricane lamp). Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.
Please note the 4 oz. of alcohol in this drink. You’ll be a “ragin’ cajun” in no time. Do you think the Scorpions have been to Pat O’Briens?
