Last but not least we have out quick and simple Big Batch Hurricane Cocktail Recipe

  • 12 ounces light rum
  • 12 ounces dark rum
  • 10 ounce grenadine, or passion fruit syrup
  • 10 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 10 ounce sour mix or fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • Orange wedges, for garnish

Mix all the ingredients in a tall pitcher or large pot and stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour into a punch bowl and add the ice cubes and orange segments. Serve in hurricane glasses and garnish with orange.

Be careful with these, they go down very easily 😉



à la vôtre (cheers)
