“Pour me something tall and strong, make it a hurricane, before I go insane. Its only half past twelve, but I don’t care. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.”
Housewives Hurricane Drink Recipe
Whenever we have a hurricane approaching the east coast, we think of this Hurricane Drink Recipe to get us through it.
After we’ve battened up the hatches and stocked up on emergency essentials, we might as well make lemonade out of lemons, right?
Mardi Gras Memories
I included the Mardi Gras beads and sunglasses because New Orleans is the very first place that I ever drank a hurricane, at the infamous Pat O’Brien’s in the late ’90’s during Mardi Gras.
Believe me, I caught more beads than this.
I brought this glass, the beads and the sunglasses back home as souvenirs.
Little did I know several years later, I’d be breaking it back out again to make my very own Hurricane Drink Recipe.
I’m calling this the Housewives Hurricane Drink Recipe because I added an additional ingredient that did not come with the classic Hurricane recipe – Seagram’s Ginger Ale.
Here are the ingredients:
- 1.5 oz Amaretto Liqueur (I used Di Amore)
- 1 oz Light Rum (I used Bacardi)
- 1 oz Dark Rum (I used Bacardi)
- 6 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
- 6 oz pineapple juice
- 1 t lemon juice
- 1 dash grenadine
- 1/2 c Seagram’s Ginger Ale
- 1 round orange slice
- maraschino cherries
Oh my goodness gracious!
This is so good!
Brings back memories of being on Bourbon Street and watching the many sights, and I mean sights, of Mardi Gras.
Please only make this drink if you are 21 or older.
Don’t drink and drive.
Have a designated driver if you are not at home.
But if you are at home – Hey!! It’s 5 o’clock!
Stay Safe During the Hurricane
Enjoy and please stay safe!!
