Friday 5 o’Clock Cocktail – The Hurricane

How To Make a HurricaneIf you’ve ever been to New Orleans then you can probably appreciate the benefits of a strong Hurricane. And no, I’m not talking about Katrina or Andrew. I’m talking about the kind of Hurricane every drunk should know how to make.

Now, there are some fancy pants bartenders who aren’t from the Big Easy who get stingy with the booze. I’ve seen recipes for Hurricanes that only include one ounce of liquor in a big glass of juice. Sorry, that’s not how you make ’em.

When you order your Hurricane from one of the open, walk-up bars on Bourbon street , the drink is strong. Like “knock-you-on-your-a$$-strong”. I mean, it’s called a Hurricane, not a “drizzle”. Hurricanes destroy things, so it follows that if you drink one, you should be likewise destroyed, right?

But you don’t have to go to Louisiana to get a good Hurricane because you’re a Drunk and you can make your own. Here’s how to do it:

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Amaretto
  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Light Rum
  • 1 oz Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz 151 Rum
  • 1/4 oz Grenadine Syrup
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Grapefruit Juice 

Directions: Pour the liquors into a Hurricane glass (or pint glass, or collins glass, or whatever big glass you have) 3/4 filled with ice and stir. Fill the rest of the way with equal parts of the juices. Enjoy.

  1. I have everything but the juices. Are they really necessary? 😉

  2. Nah, you can do without. But I would probably change the name to a “Tornado” haha
