This Hurricane recipe makes a strong, boozy cocktail has such a distinct flavor. It reminds me of vacationing on a beach and is perfect for Mardis Gras celebrations.
Happy Mardi Gras! I’ll be working today, not partying in New Orleans, but I’ll be looking forward to having a Hurricane when I get home tonight.
This strong, boozy cocktail has such a distinct flavor. The flavor reminds me of vacationing on a beach, or sitting out on my deck in the summertime with friends…I’m hoping that some of those days come sooner rather than later. We dodged the last “epic” snow storm here in Jersey and I’m thankful for that.
The recipe for this Hurricane will definitely put a dent in your liquor cabinet. There’s vodka, gin, rum and amaretto- just in this one drink. The pineapple juice and the grapefruit juice does an excellent job of covering up all the alcohol that’s in it, so consider yourself warned! You can double or even triple or quadruple the booze in this recipe for however many drinks you think you might need and just store it in a pitcher.
Then pour each drink over ice and top with the fruit juices. It tastes like Mardi Gras in a glass.
And for now, I think I’m good with celebrating Mardi Gras in New Jersey…a couple of these Hurricanes and I’m done for the night!Print
