There’s something so enjoyable about Hurricanes. There are so many variations but my favorite will always be the classic. A note about the passion fruit element – if you can find fresh passion fruit, the best way to bring in the flavor would be to make a syrup with equal parts sugar and fruit cooked over low flame for 15-20 minutes, then strain out the solids. If that isn’t an option, you can usually find some delicious passion fruit nectar in the fresh juice section of your grocery store and it works perfectly as well.


Equipment: Shaker, strainer, hurricane glass or highball

2 oz dark rum

1 oz passion fruit syrup/nectar

1 oz fresh lemon juice

slice of lemon and maraschino cherry for garnish


Combine rum, passion fruit syrup or nectar and fresh lemon in shaker with ice. Strain into hurricane glass or highball over fresh ice and garnish with slice of lemon and cherry. Cheers!
