This New Orleans classic is delicious and packs the punch of a category 4 tropical storm!



2 ounces light rum

2 ounces dark rum

1/2 ounce overproof 151 rum

2 ounces passion fruit puree

1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

1 ounce fresh squeezed orange juice

1/2 ounce simple syrup

1/2 ounce grenadine syrup


  1. Fill a large cocktail shaker with two scoops of fresh ice.
  2. Pour all of the ingredients into the shaker and shake for at least 30 seconds, until drink is fully mixed and chilled.
  3. Strain into a hurricane glass filled with one scoop of ice.
  4. Add an orange and cherry garnish.


You can blend this drink if you choose. Just add two cups of ice to the blender with the wet ingredients and blend until smooth.

You can skip the overproof rum if you prefer. I like the taste it gives the drink, but be forewarned that it can be strong.

If you prefer a sweeter drink, increase the simple syrup to 1 ounce, or to desired level of sweetness.
