Hurricane Brew (a.k.a. Good-Night Irene)

In order to cope with Hurri-Quake 2011, we thought it was appropriate to make the classic hurricane cocktail. Wow – this was a crazy amount of ingredients.

  • Grenadine
  • Triple-Sec
  • Amaretto
  • Vodka
  • Dark Rum
  • Margarita Mix
  • Grapefruit Juice
  • Pineapple Juice

I thought the Amaretto was unnecessary, but it really added a kick reminiscent of Spring Break 1994.


My last meal…



1/2 can cream of coconut (stir a bit before adding)
1/2 can crushed pineapple
5 oz good rum (I like Pussers)
3 cups ice

– Combine all ingredients in the blender and churn away. Taste and adjust ingredients as necessary. Add a little pineapple juice if you like it sweeter. Add a dark rum “floater” if you like it boozier.
