    Get Blown Away by a NQM Hurricane

    Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler (which means Let the Good Times Roll) and is a greeting you hear throughout New Orleans around Mardi Gras time! Here is a simplified version of the classic Hurricane cocktail for you to enjoy now or anytime of the year!

    Prep time: 5 minutes
    Serves: 1 cocktail
    Pairs well with: Spicy seafood dishes, NOLA cuisine, and Jazz

    Ingredients:

    • 1 oz. light rum
    • 1 oz. orange juice
    • 1 oz. pineapple juice
    • 2 oz. Mango Nectar* (see notes)
    • ½ oz. Amaretto
    • 1 oz. dark rum
    • 1 Tbsp. grenadine

    Garnish:

    • Orange wedge
    • Maraschino cherry

    Method:

    1. Fill your hurricane glass with ice
    2. Pour in your light rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, and mango nectar.
    3. Give a quick stir, then gently pour in your grenadine, it will sink to the bottom giving it a blush hue.
    4. Next pour in your Amaretto.
    5. To top it off, with a light hand, slowly pour your dark rum over the top to create a rum float
    6. Garnish and serve.

    Notes:

    • *Mango Nectar can be found at most grocery stores sold in single cans. Popular brands are:  Kerns, Jumex, Goya, and Langers
    • Traditional Hurricane recipes call for Passion fruit syrup, so if you have that on hand, you can swap out the mango nectar and grenadine for it.
    • Serve on a platter with festive drink stirrers so your guests can stir in the rum float. These drinks look impressive in numbers.
    • If you don’t have grenadine, you can use the juice from the maraschino cherry jar instead.
