Hurricane Rum Cocktail


Hurricane Rum Cocktail


The Hurricane was created in New Orleans back in the 1940s. It was created out of necessity, when whiskey was in short supply due to the war. Rum was in abundance, and some suppliers would only sell a case of whiskey if it was accompanied by two cases of rum. Bars then had plenty of rum on hand, which forced them to get creative to move the stock!
This drink is large and boozy but you can always halve the measurements for a more responsible version.
