This hurricane recipe is unparalleled for taste and drinkability! Everyone I've introduced it to has become hooked, and the bar that serves the original recipe routinely runs out of hurricane glasses to serve in, due to the popularity of this tasty beverage!

I love this drink - I make it in a punch bowl for my annual Mardi Gras party. After making it by the recipe I've made some adjustments that make it potent but not killer! I mix 1 1/2 Cups each of light run dark rum coconut rum and then 1 cup each of chambord and triple sec and then 4 - 4 1/2 cups of OJ. I went through 4 punch bowls this past Saturday and people were looking for more!! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Although traditional hurricanes are a good bit sweeter and a little less strong this has become my and my husband's favorite! I recently hosted a NOLA themed luncheon and served these as the cocktail. It was a huge hit. Be forewarned! It does pack a huge punch with the final product being about 50 proof (as much liquor as a straight shot of most whiskeys). I've made this as directed with great results and I suggest trying it that way first before changing the recipe to taste. I've also though made a few alterations to taste (and liquor availability). Adding an additional part orange juice doesn't change the taste that much. I've also substituted raspberry schnapps for Chambord when it was out in my local store with no taste change. If you want to make a big batch as I did for a get together it does keep very well pre-mixed in a sealed container in the refrigerator for about two days. Read More

WOW!!! What a kick. I found that adding five parts orange juice really cuts nicely into this drink and makes it drink much smoother. Also these proportions allow two smaller (12 oz.) servings. Read More

Holy Huricane! I left out the gin and added xtra oj and a can of pineapple juice and they were still pretty deadly! Everyone loved them so much that they couldn't drive home afterwards! Read More
