Here is the recipe for the Nawlins version of the Hurricane:
1 oz white rum
1 oz Jamaican dark rum
1 oz Bacardi 151 rum
3 oz orange juice
3 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 oz grenadine syrup
Combine all ingredients and mix or shake well. Pour over crushed ice in a hurricane glass. Best enjoyed through a small straw (yes Chrissie, your straw made it to Nawlins!). Garnish with fruit wedge if desired.
And here is the recipe for the Hand Grenade drink, Nawlins style of course:
1.5 oz gin
1.5 oz grain alcohol (seriously)
1.5 oz melon liquer
1.5 oz rum
1.5 oz vodka
Stir ingredients together in a collins glass filled with ice cubes. Add water (forget it!)
and sugar if desired, to taste, and serve. The container is quite important, I say.
Now, after these two drinks, what can possibly be of any interest to a serious partier? The Big Ass Beer of course. It is only 500 ounces! Basically a liter and a half of cheap beer. They often serve it with a 32 oz burger. And get this, they often have half-price nights!
Personally, I do not like walking around Bourbon Street, or anywhere else with an open container. And certainly anyone driving would be an easy target for the Nawlins PD. Many people like to bring the Hurricane or Hand Grenade glass back home as a souvenir. I say, grow up, and get a real souvenir, like a T-shirt or fridge magnet!
