Unfortunately 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.
