You know what they say “Everything is bigger and better in Texas”. The Texas Hurricane Cocktail is a cousin to the Long Island Ice Tea and like its cousin is deceptively strong. This cocktail recipe is a perfect blend of 151 proof rum, dark spice rum, coconut rum, vodka, gin, triple sec orange-flavored liqueur, grenadine syrup, orange juice, and pineapple juice.

Served in a tall hurricane glass over crushed ice, this smooth cocktail lives up to its name. So if you are going to a party and plan on drinking these make sure you have a designated driver.

Storms a’brewin!

The year was 1940, and in those days, Prohibition was a very real thing. Business owner Pat O’Brien opened a speakeasy in New Orleans, the perfect stop for sailors along their travels. If they wanted to get into the speakeasy, the phase was simple: “storms a’brewin.”

Once inside, sailors could order a variety of drinks, but one was free – the hurricane. You see, getting quality liquor was difficult and the liquor suppliers knew it. In order to get even just a little bit of the good stuff, they made business owners order a ton of the cheap stuff. Well, Mr. O’Brien found himself with a heap of cheap rum and nothing to use it for, so he came up with a plan. Why not mix it up with some fruit juice, then serve it to sailors for free as a gimmick to get them into his bar vs. others! The trick worked, but the joke’s on O’Brien because not only did they drink it – they liked it! The hurricane as we know it today was born.
