About the recipe

The fruity, rum-filled Hurricane cocktail originated at the New Orleans bar, Pat O'Brien's, allegedly as a way to sell off unwanted rum. While the mix of fruit juices certainly can disguise poor flavors in a cheap rum, we'd recommend celebrating the spirit with a high-quality, full-bodied choice, such as Appleton Estate Signature or Bacardi 8 Años. Speaking of rum, feel free to use the full four ounces in your drink, or scale it back to a more demure two ounces — or land somewhere in between. 

Although this drink is classically served in a tulip-shaped Hurricane glass, you can certainly use a large Mason jar or Collins glass.
