An iconic New Orleans cocktail, the Hurricane, a mix of rum, citrus and passion fruit, was first mixed at the Pat O鈥橞riens bar in NOLA鈥檚 French Quarter in the 1940s. The drink takes its name from the curvy glass it鈥檚 served in, which resembles a hurricane lamp.

This version, reimagined as a snow cone, it鈥檚 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.
