Cheers to the Big Easy… The N’awlins Hurricane

New Orleans HurricaneUnfortunately we can only be in New Orleans in spirit today for Mardi Gras (we did have a stack of pancakes though). If you are lucky enough to be there, we totally wish we were you.

Yesterday we posted four of the classic cocktails of the Big Easy – today we add one more, the classic New Orleans Hurricane: a tall glass of awesome fruit flavours with the kick of 3 kinds of rum.

Laissez le Bon temp rouler, y’all!


  • 1 oz dark rum
  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 oz Baacardi 151 rum
  • 3 oz orange juice
  • 3 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz grenadine
  • orange zest twist
  • maraschino cherry

Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake then strain into a tall glass (Hurricane glass preferred) filled with crushed ice. Garnish with an orange twist and a maraschino cherry.
