Southern Hurricane

I found a recipe for a cocktail called a Hurricane in Wine Enthusiast magazine. From what I could tell, it was non-traditional, so I decided to take their recipe, run with it, and rename it as a Southern Hurricane. Let me tell you, this thing is good! If you are frustrated with life at the moment, family, friends, or even yourself, one glass of this and you simply won’t care anymore. I think this is going to be my signature summer cocktail. You might consider doing the same.

Southern Hurricane

Adapted from Wine Enthusiast

2 oz. light rum
2 oz. dark rum
2 oz. pineapple rum
2 oz.
passion fruit juice
1 oz. pineapple juice
2 oz. orange juice
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz.
An orange slice and a cherry for garnish
Not to mention a
fancy straw

Combine all ingredients (except for the garnish) in a
cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 30 seconds and pour into a hurricane glass, that failing, a large brandy snifter will do. Add chipped ice and garnish, and serve. Serves 1 to 2. Frankly, I drank this myself.

Haha, forget servings for 2, I'd drink it myself too. Is it anything like a New Orleans hurricane? I had a hefty hangover after one of those back in the 1990s (which was relieved by beignets and Cafe Au Lait at Cafe Du Monde!)

Linda, it’s very similar except I omit the simple syrup (who needs that?), and added pineapple rum instead of pineapple juice.
