Pour all but the juices, in order listed, into a hurricane glass three-quarters filled with ice. Fill with equal parts of grapefruit and pineapple juice, and serve.
Be careful with this one!

When I first experienced this drink, I went into the bar and asked for the strongest drink that they made. I could hardly taste the alcohol and yet it got the job done!

This is fabulous. SO much better than Myer's and Hawaiin Punch. However, beware! It's full of booze and NOT to be consumed in large quantities! It's VERY potent!!!

I served this at a Mardi Gras party, and everyone was pleased. If you want a more rounded taste, use equal parts passion fruit juice, pineapple juice, and pink grapefruit juice to fill the drink (the passion fruit juice is key...Goya makes it).

Way i was taught, my little rose sips on grenadine...
1oz light rum,
1/4 oz rose's lime
fill with sweet and sour and orange juice
top with spash grenadine
Usually since the 'cane glasses are full of ice, not much liquer, tho add for taste. If you're trying to get hammered go to the bar and order a 4 horsemen hehe.

I happen to love the hurricane. No better drink on my list, not too fruity, not too strong, goes down smooth...awesome!

This is my drink of choice for beach weddings. Gets the job done tastes great and looks festive!
A catch up drink!

The best thing to have if you got to the party late. No one likes to be straight sober when everyone else has had a few. Tastes great, but more than two is too much. You gotta switch it up after a hurricane. Love this drink!
Knock ya out!

The Hurricane is an awesome drink. It's just like in Jimmy Buffet and Alan Jackson's song "It's 5:00 Somewhere". ...Pour me something tall and strong...
A Hurricane will put you on your a$$ if you are not careful!!!!

First, as almost everyone above notes, hurricanes are made with RUM. The best mix dark and white. The toughest thing to duplicate in the real recipe is Passion Fruit juice. Look in stores that cater to Pacific Islanders. My recipe:
2 oz light rum
2 oz dark rum
2 oz passion fruit juice
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1 tbsp simple syrup
1 tbsp grenadine
Garnish with orange slice and cherry
And if you're ever in New Orleans, go to Pat O'Brien's and get the original.
I prefer O'douls

Try Pyrat Rum

Get the mix from Pat Os and a fifth of Pyrat rum. Of course you have to get the hurricane glasses from Pat Os too.
