New Orleans Style Classic Big Easy Hurricane Cocktail

The Hurricane became popular at Pat O’Briens bar in 1940’s New Orleans, and is now an iconic staple of New Orleans. The story behind the drink claims that it debuted during the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City and got its name from the hurricane lamp-shaped glasses that the first drinks were served in, and still known as hurricane glasses today.  Enjoy our version of this classic made famous in the Big Easy.  These pack a heck of a punch, so please enjoy responsibly.
