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.

Hurricane #2

  • 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 Hurricane

The perfect cocktail for hunkering down during a hurricane.

Hurricane #2

If you lose power, serve this over ice.  Delicious!

  1. Sounds delicious. I'm going to save this for our spring storms which should be starting up in a few weeks. Though they are nothing compared to what hurricane Irene is dishing out.

    Good luck with hurricane irene.

    We're thinking of you and hope everyone makes it through this beastie okay.
