In order to cope with Hurri-Quake 2011, we had to have a signature cocktail on hand to get us through these difficult times (and it was a good excuse to drink). The goons were getting restless! After a little research and polling friends on FB, I learned that the classic Hurricane cocktail from NOLA has to have rum, but can contain almost anything else.
My brew contained varying amounts of the kitchen sink:
- 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. I’m happy to report that after a 1/2 glass of this bad boy, I am remembering better times and cannot feel my teeth.
