Serves One


2 oz. light rum 

2 oz. dark rum

2 oz. passion fruit juice

1 oz. orange juice

½ oz. fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon simple syrup

1 tablespoon grenadine

Orange slice and maraschino cherry to garnish


1. Chill a large hurricane glass in the freezer for 15 minutes to get ice cold.

2. Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigoriously to combine and get ice cold.

3. Strain into the chilled hurricane glass and garnish with an Orange slice and cherry.


Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water melted in a small pot on the stove until sugar melts (a few minutes) then allow to cool and chill.

Notes: OK, no trip to New Orleans is complete without a visit to Pat O’Brien’s famous pub for his even more famous Hurricane drink. You can buy his mix at the pub and online here. But, if you want to make your own, here is the classic recipe using fresh ingredients. Add those fabulous hurricane glasses, garnishes and go wild with an umbrella, and you have a fun cocktail!

You can easily make this in pitchers for large groups (just double, triple, etc.). Make a cup of the simple syrup (one cup sugar and one cup water) the day before your party and store in the fridge. Serve with my New Orleans style Tilapia and Dirty Rice for an evening of great food and lots of laughs!
