Hurricane Cocktail

Submitted by John on Fri, 09/14/2018 - 17:07

A New Orleans tradition from about 1940, this is often served in a large glass shaped somewhat like a classic hurricane lamp, with plenty of ice. It's not a strong drink (almost half of it is fruit juice), but it's one of those easy drinking cocktails that makes the morning after so trying.

I don't usually care for very fruity cocktails, so I make these during hurricane season when those monster storms fill the news and I remember this popular drink. This is not nearly as dangerous as a hurricane, or even a Martini: it's only half rum and the other half is fruit juice and other sweet additions.
