Huricane Cocktail Recipe #MardiGras #AnAppealingPlan #cocktails

“The world-famous Hurricane is a Pat O’Brien’s original. The cocktail is a sweet alcoholic drink consisting of rum, passion fruit syrup and limejuice. The drink originated in the 1940s because of the need to use up 50 cases of the less popular rum that the local distributors forced the bar to buy before getting the more popular scotch and whiskey liquors. The drink was given to sailors in a hurricane lamp-shaped glass and the name “hurricane” stuck. The drink quickly become popular and is now one of the must haves when visiting New Orleans’ French Quarter. The Hurricane drink is still served in its classic hurricane glass, but many times it is seen in plastic cups because of local New Orleans drinking laws that prohibit public drinking from glass containers.”

On my very first visit to New Orleans I fell in love with the city. But if you want my advice, skip Mardi Gras and head there on a down weekend. The city is filled with amazing food, music and hidden courtyards.

Until you can make your way to the not quite so hidden courtyard of Pat O’Brien’s, put some zydeco music on and enjoy my version of this classic.

    Definitely going to have to try a non-alcoholic version of this!

  2. Kim Beaulieu March 5, 2014 at 3:31 AM #

    This looks so good. Perfect cocktail to indulge in.

  3. Marjory @ Dinner-Mom March 4, 2014 at 10:20 PM #

    Wow! What a perfect cocktail for Mardi Gras. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Nancy @ gottagetbaked March 4, 2014 at 12:19 AM #

    I want a hurricane right now! This looks fabulous, Krayl! And your photos are gorgeous. I always have rum in my house (that totally makes me sound like an alcoholic). I just need the passionfruit juice and I’m ready to roll!

    I’ve had a hurricane in NOLA and it is quite a drink for sure. It’s such a classic but a little too sweet for my taste these days. However, if I every want to make one for an occasion or friends I’m glad I can come here for the recipe.

  6. Julie @ Texan New Yorker March 3, 2014 at 4:22 PM #

    Oh hurricanes…. So dangerous…. Yet that stops no one from consuming. They’re too good! Gorgeous picture, too.

  7. Jane's Adventures in Dinner March 3, 2014 at 12:09 PM #

    Oh, sign me up for a huge pitcher of these.

  8. Nicole @ Daily Dish Recipes March 3, 2014 at 11:07 AM #

    This is gorgeous and sounds delicious. I love Hurricanes!! :)

  9. Cathy March 3, 2014 at 10:38 AM #

    I vividly remember my first visit to NOLA and my encounter with the famous hurricanes at Pat O’Brien’s. Great drink!

  10. Cindys Recipes and Writings March 2, 2014 at 11:34 PM #

    Beautiful, Krayl! I’d love to try one!

  11. Melanie March 2, 2014 at 9:21 PM #

    Now THIS is a hurricane anyone would enjoy!

  12. Tammy Northrup March 2, 2014 at 8:19 PM #

    Wow this sounds amazing! I can’t wait to make it to New Orleans someday. I love reading everyone’s stories about their experiences.

  13. Katie March 2, 2014 at 7:24 PM #

    Oh so yummy! I have enjoyed a hurricane at Pat O’Briens before, and it was oh so yummy! Perhaps I should try making my own at home…

  14. Betsy @ Desserts Required March 2, 2014 at 7:04 PM #

    I did not know the history of the hurricane drink. It was NOT what I thought.

    This drink looks delicious. I am adding it to my next party!!

  15. Jennifer B March 2, 2014 at 6:35 PM #

    YAY!! I love the Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane. They have one in Orlando that I have to go to whenever I’m in the city.

  16. Shannon R March 2, 2014 at 3:22 PM #

    Nothing says mardi gras like a hurricane! I love mine frozen, but they go down way too easy!

  17. Susan March 2, 2014 at 3:13 PM #

    Such a great cocktail, although I’m sure the ones I’ve had a New Orleans style restaurants up here don’t compare to the original!

  18. The Wimpy Vegetarian March 2, 2014 at 3:00 PM #

    This is very dangerous knowing how to make this drink! And I love knowing the back-story on how this drink got started!!

  19. Bea March 2, 2014 at 2:53 PM #

    Oh, I will be over for cocktail hour :) It sounds really good!

  20. MealDiva March 2, 2014 at 1:58 PM #

    Sounds yummy! I’ve seen this drink a few times but never made it… gonna have to give this a whirl!

  21. Shaina March 2, 2014 at 12:25 PM #

    I always wondered why the Hurricane was “the” New Orleans/Mardi Gras drink! I have to admit, though, I had one at Pat O’Brien’s and thought it was absolutely disgusting. A homemade version is hopefully better than the overly sweet concoction I had there!

  22. Family Foodie March 2, 2014 at 11:48 AM #

    Dropping everything and coming over to have one of these with you! Cheers!

  23. Stacy March 2, 2014 at 10:28 AM #

    No wonder those knock folks out! Four ounces of rum! I had no idea. My personal drink of choice in the Quarter is a spicy Bloody Mary. There’s a little corner bar that makes them with added pickled okra instead of celery sticks!

    We go to New Orleans as often as we can since we have family there and you are so right, a down weekend is a much better time to visit. Although everyone should experience the parades at least once, don’t you think?

  24. Courtney @ Neighborfood March 2, 2014 at 10:23 AM #

    I never knew the history of the hurricane before! That’s really awesome. I can see why it became so popular.

  25. miss messy March 2, 2014 at 10:18 AM #

    this looks wonderful. I love the passion fruit juice in it!

  26. Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers March 2, 2014 at 10:15 AM #

    Yum! I just love a good Hurricane drink and yours looks so amazing!!!!

  27. Amy Kim (@kimchi_mom) March 2, 2014 at 9:37 AM #

    Beautiful! Never had one, but will have to try it out! Cheers!

  28. Nichole C March 2, 2014 at 9:03 AM #

    You can never go wrong with a classic like this!

  29. Tammi @ Momma's Meals March 2, 2014 at 8:58 AM #

    Yummy! Yours came out a lot better than mine, I love the passion fruit. I also love your history that came along with this recipe! Cheers!

    • An Appealing Plan March 2, 2014 at 10:04 AM #

      Apparently the passion fruit is the key! But I don’t think you can go wrong even if you get close.

  30. Tara March 2, 2014 at 8:40 AM #

    What a fabulous cocktail to serve for Mardi Gras, I love it!!

  31. Hezzi-D March 2, 2014 at 8:23 AM #

    Hurricanes are such a great cocktail! I love the fruity flavors!

  32. Laura March 2, 2014 at 8:06 AM #

    This sounds sound good it not very dangerous. :)

    • An Appealing Plan March 2, 2014 at 10:01 AM #

      To lighten it up add more juice. It is traditionally a pretty strong drink…

  33. Liz March 2, 2014 at 6:58 AM #

    What a gorgeous cocktail. We have a blizzard brewing and I’d love to close my eyes and sip on this glass of summer!

    • An Appealing Plan March 2, 2014 at 10:03 AM #

      Liz, mix up a batch, turn up the heat, close your eyes and pretend.

  34. Manu March 2, 2014 at 5:19 AM #

    I have heard so much about this drink and never had it! I must make it… rum based cocktails are my favourite drinks!
