From Wikipedia

The hurricane is a sweet alcoholic drink made with rum, fruit juice, and syrup or grenadine. It is one of many popular drinks served in New Orleans.

The creation of this passion fruit–colored relative of a daiquiri is credited to New Orleans tavern owner Pat O’Brien.[2] The bar allegedly started as a speakeasy called Mr. O’Brien’s Club Tipperary and the password was “storm’s brewin'”[2]

In the 1940s, he needed to create a new drink to help him get rid of all of the less-popular rum that local distributors forced him to buy before he could get a few cases of more popular liquors such as scotch and other whiskeys.[3][4] He poured the concoction into hurricane lamp–shaped glasses and gave it away to sailors.

If you can’t make it to Pat O’brien -you can try this –

 

  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger amaretto liqueur
  • 1 fluid ounce light rum
  • 1 fluid ounce dark rum
  • 6 fluid ounces orange juice
  • 6 fluid ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 dash grenadine syrup
  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds

top with 1 Maraschino cherry

Directions
