Cocktail Hour: Hurricane

The hurricane cocktail became popular in America in the 40s. So named because of the shape of the glasses, not because it'll make you feel like you're in one when you've had a couple. It's a simple drink to make, but you're going to need a pretty well stocked bar. Best make this one after you've been shopping. There are variations on this recipe - no reason why you can't use gin and vodka as well.

You'll need:
  • 50ml light rum
  • 50ml dark rum
  • 50ml passionfruit juice or pineapple juice if you can't find any
  • 25ml orange juice
  • lime juice
  • 1tsp grenadine
  • Orange slice
  • Cherries for garnish
Shake it!

Start with the lime juice over ice in a cocktail shaker. Add the rest of the liquid ingredients. Shake well, strain into a hurricane glass (they're the one that are fat at the bottom and go in a slim curve to the top). Add the orange slices and cherries. And a funny twirly straw, just for fun.

    I love this website, I really do, but the typos irritate me! All the time ladies, they are everywhere! Other than that, it's always fab here!
