As you may have heard, New York, usually blissfully free of natural disaster (unless you count political scandals) recently got a double whammy. We were treated to a little earthquake mid-week and then spent the weekend in a hurricane.
3 oz. Rum
1 1/2 oz. Grenedine
1 1/2 oz. Orange juice
1 1/2 oz. Pineapple juice
1 oz. Lime juice
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
Shake over ice and serve in an iced tea glass or tumbler. Garnish with slices of orange or lime.
Note that the original Hurricane calls for passion fruit juice but, if that's hard to find, the combination of orange and pineapple juices do just fine. The drink itself is deceptively powerful because it's so sweet. In fact, too sweet for our taste. Our version tones it down a touch by using a bit less grenadine and more lime juice.
