So I am getting ready to go through my first hurricane. To get into the spirit of things I decided to make a hurricane cocktail. This is a basic hurricane recipe, but made with grenadine instead of passion fruit juice. Delicious and the ingredients were easy to come by. A good thing when all of the stores are empty. Side note – If you think there is a natural disaster coming to town, stock up on D batteries. They are the first thing sold out at all of the stores.
- 2 shots light rum
- 2 shots dark rum
- 1 shot grenadine
- 1 shot orange juice
- 1 shot sour mix
- 1 tsp simple syrup
- 2 cups ice
- orange slice and maraschino cherries for garnish
Add the ingredients into a blender and blend until the ice is crushed.
Pour into a tall glass and garnish with a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.
The perfect cocktail for hunkering down during a hurricane.
If you lose power, serve this over ice. Delicious!
