A perfect cocktail for a perfect day!

The hurricane is a simple but potent combination of several different liquors and juices – Vodka, Grenadine, Gin , Light Rum, Bacardi 151 Proof Rum, Amaretto, Triple Sec, Grapefruit Juice, and Pineapple Juice.

This New Orleans native cocktail was concocted during the World War II at a famous New Orleans French Quarter Bar named Pat O’Brien’s. It was recorded that this fruity mixed drink came about when liquor, such as whiskey, was low in supply. Liquor salesmen would force bar owners to purchase as much as 50 cases of rum along with the 1 case of whiskey. Rum was plentiful during World War II, and this made it possible for salesmen to swindle their customers into purchasing this much liquor.

The recipe for the Hurricane cocktail was created with the help of an eager liquor salesman. The name for this mixed drink came later after a glass shaped like a hurricane was used to serve the fruity cocktail.

Until this day, Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane cocktail glass is a favorite among tourists, as well as New Orleans residents.
