Today I'm sharing the recipe for a Hurricane. This potent cocktail, created by Pat O'Brien in New Orleans, is more associated with Mardi Gras than Thanksgiving, but given its strength, it might come in handy when dealing with family gatherings. I got the classic recipe from Beach Bum Berry Remixed - it's a great recipe book for tropical cocktails.
- 4 oz dark Jamaican rum
- 2 oz passionfruit syrup
- 2 oz lemon juice
- 1 cup crushed ice
Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.
Pour into a hurricane glass (or a tiki mug) and enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be putting up some of our Thanksgiving recipes later this week (and next).
