I’ve been playing around with a new recipe for The Hurricane, the famous drink from New Orleans. While the Hurricane is famous, the exact ingredients (besides rum) are not particularly agreed upon. This is a riff inspired by the recipe in Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log.
Hurricane by Kevin Crossman
1 oz Lemon Juice
⅓ oz Passionfruit Syrup
¾ oz BG Reynolds Circus Peanut Syrup
1½ oz Dark Jamaican Rum
½ oz Overproof Demerara Rum
My aim was to hit a fine spot between the overly sweet Hurricanes and those which lean on the tart side. In Beachbum Berry’s recipe it calls for basically double the proportions here, resulting in a cocktail with four ounces of rum. Feel free to double my recipe if you want to fill a tall hurricane glass.
For my version, I used BG Reynolds Passionfruit Syrup, Coruba Dark Jamaican rum, and Plantation OFTD rum.
