Thirsty Thursday!

Good morning friends!  Such an exciting week this week!  We had our earthquake the other day and we are now bracing for Hurricane Irene!  Between the flooding, quakes and now impending hurricane, it has been a CRAZY August.  We even beat all records for rainfall for the month of August.  Let's hope the Fall is a little less exciting!

A coworker was telling me yesterday about her recent trip to New Orleans and how they had this libation called "The Hurricane" which was mighty powerful.  I thought, what better drink to feature for TT!?!  Thing is, there are many variations of the Hurricane but since she was in New Orleans, I'm featuring their recipe. 


Hurricane - New Orleans Style!
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
crushed ice

Combine all ingredients, mix well (shake or stir). Pour over crushed ice in hurricane glass. Best enjoyed through a small straw. Garnish with fruit wedge if desired.

I have not had one (yet!) but apparently if you need to calm your nerves, this baby will do the trick!
