Mardi Gras starts on Tuesday and in celebration we’re channeling a New Orleans favorite. The Hurricane first debuted at Pat O’Brien’s pub in the 40’s, as a solution to get rid of excess rum behind the bar. Nowadays, this sweet rum cocktail is a classic in the French Quarter and will be our go to this Mardi Gras. To mix up a Hurricane you’ll need:


2 oz. light rum

2 oz. dark rum

2 oz. passion fruit juice

1 oz. orange juice

1 tbsp. simple syrup

1 tbsp grenadine

Juice of half a lime

Orange slice for garnish


Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and serve in a Hurricane glass. If you need us we’ll be celebrating Mardi Gras the right way – cocktail in hand.
