Hurricane Drink Recipe

Hurricane Drink Recipe – The origin of the hurricane cocktail can be traced back to New Orleans where the first one was served in the now signature hurricane lamp shaped glass. There are many different hurricane drink recipes on the web today. Some contain vodka or gin, some grapefruit and / or cranberry juice – but staying as close to the classic as possible, we use only rum and trade the more available pineapple and orange for the passion fruit juice the original recipe calls for.
