An iconic New Orleans cocktail, the Hurricane, a mix of rum, citrus and passion fruit, was first mixed at the Pat O’Briens bar in NOLA’s French Quarter in the 1940s. The drink takes its name from the curvy glass it’s served in, which resembles a hurricane lamp.
This version, reimagined as a snow cone, it’s a bit different from the original. In addition to the crushed ice, adds an additional punch of tart citrus flavor by using extra lemon and lime, while keeping the rum-and-passion fruit components. A paper parasol garnish provides a final whimsical touch.
- 1 ¼ ounces aged rum
- 1 ounce The Perfect Purée Passion Fruit Concentrate, thawed
- ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
- ¼ ounce fresh lime juice
In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients, add ice, and stir. Strain into paper cone filled with shaved ice. Stir once more and pack rounded top with more shaved ice. Garnish with cocktail parasol (turned inside-out) and a long, wide straw.
