Yes, it's yummy and authentic. But watch out, especially when serving to guests. It doesn't taste as boozy as it is. It looks like a big Shirley Temple, goes down very easily, and tastes like a delicious fruit punch with a nice splash of rum. NOT! I had to take a nap. But I do recommend it as a sipper! LOL-08 Oct 2010
Made for a very tasty, fruity, not so knock-you-on-your-butt with one little change... we replaced the amaretto with Malibu for a little more of a tropical flavor that all participants at our "hurricane tasting" really preferred.-23 Feb 2009
Very good! I like my fruit driks blended and it tasted great. Others enjoyed theirs on the rocks. Thanks for a great drink!-13 Aug 2001

Variations on a hurricane
For our Hurricane, I’ll stick with the rum versions. I have four versions — all from actual books, not cobbled off the Internet: “Craft of the Cocktail” (which has the most ingredients), “American Bar,” “Mr. Boston’s Platinum Edition” and “The Ultimate A-to-Z Bar Guide,” which appears to have the simplest recipe.
Yes, I have quite the cocktail library. And quite the collection of booze, too. It won’t be a problem for me to make Hurricanes on the fly. But should you be needing Passion Fruit Syrup (almost all the recipes call for it), Torani makes it. Maybe you can get it at specialty stores? Or go online. (Or go crazy and make your own.Here’s a recipe from Epicurious.com.) If you want to use passion fruit juice (which is terrific in smoothies, by the way, and I have a nice rum-jalapeno drink you can make with it later), you’ll find it at Latin grocery stores under the name of maracuya, the Spanish word for passion fruit. Ceres makes it, too, and I’ve seen that at Whole Foods and other gourmet markets.
And PS: you don’t have to go out and buy Hurricane glasses. A pint glass works just fine. And so does a big wine glass.
Here are the recipes. Stay safe, everyone — and cheers.
How did the Hurricane Cocktail get its name?
The origin of the Hurricane is credited to Pat O’Brien’s, a bar in New Orleans. Back in the Prohibition Era, the bar originally started as a speakeasy (a secret establishment that served alcohol), and the password was “Storm’s a Brewin’.”
Legend has it that the bar owner did what he could to sell off (less popular) rum, so he added it to a variety of tropical fruit juices and created the classic Hurricane Cocktail Recipe.
Here I am at Pat O’Brien’s last week with a few of my friends. We’re sharing a Hurricane, of course!
In the 40’s, Pat O’Brien served the original Hurricanes in Hurricane lamp shaped glasses and gave them away to sailors. They were a big hit, and they’re still an attraction at the original Pat O’Brien’s today.
Nowadays, you can order a Hurricane at Pat O’Brien’s and you get to keep the glass (they pack it up for you). But more often than not, you order it in a GO CUP, which is a popular choice in New Orleans. That means you can buy a drink in a bar and bring it with you on the street. Yep, you can drink cocktails while walking around New Orleans. It’s totally legal.
This iconic fruity, boozy drink will transport you right to Bourbon Street. This variation on the daiquiri was invented in New Orleans by tavern owner Pat O'Brien. The origin of the name hurricane comes from two interesting historical tidbits. First, Pat's bar was originally a speakeasy where the password to get in was, reportedly, "storm's brewin'".
Secondly when Pat was given a shipment of bottom shelf rum he was struggling to sell it. So, he created a drink of rum mixed with fruit juices and served it in a hurricane lamp (a gas lamp with a curvy glass cover). The drink was a hit and we are still drinking it today!
To honor its origins the Hurricane typically served in a fun, curvy glass. It is a sweet, refreshing, and filled with passionfruit and citrus juice. We also added grenadine to take this cocktail to the next level. It's been a hit in NOLA since the 1940s, and now it can be a hit in your own home.

1. Drain lasagna and place one square in each of the two well-greased 8-inch square baking pans.
2. Spread a thin layer of sauce (about 1/2 cup) over each lasagna noodle. Top with one-quarter of the amounts of the asparagus, tomato slices and lobster. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Drain fat, and add all meat to sauce. Remove bay leaves. In a nonstick 9X11 baking dish, ladle a thin layer of meat sauce in the bottom. Then a layer of pre-cooked or “no-boil” lasagna noodles (I like Barilla). Follow that with another layer of sauce, a thin layer of part-skim shredded mozzarella**, and a thin layer of shredded asiago cheese topped with another layer of noodles. Repeat until you almost reach the top of the pan. The top layer should be the cheeses. Cover, and bake at 375 for about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 7-10 minutes, or until golden, brown, and delicious looking. Enjoy!
**You will need about 2# of shredded part skim mozzarella, and 1# of shredded or grated asiago cheese.
Pan Roasted Statler Chicken With Orzo-Pecorino Mac & Cheese, Roasted Asparagus and Proscuitto Pan Sauce
- 1 Tbl Canola Oil
- 2 Statler Breasts (skin on chicken breast with drumette attached)
- Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
Mac & Cheese
- 2 Cups Cooked Orzo Pasta
- 1 Cup Heavy or Whipping cream
- 2 oz Garlic Butter
- ½ Cup Shredded Pecorino Romano
- Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
- 2 oz Proscuitto, matchstick cut
- 3 oz Quality Chicken Stock
- 2 oz Garlic Butter (recipe below)
- Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
- 1 Stick Unsalted Butter, softened
- 1 Tbl Minced Garlic
- 1 Tbl Minced Shallot
- 1 Tbl Chopped Fresh Basil
- 1 Tbl Chopped Fresh Parsley
- ½ Tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
First, make garlic butter by folding all of the ingredients into the softened butter. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 400°f. Heat 1 tbl of canola oil in a 10” sauté pan (not a nonstick pan) over medium high heat. Season chicken breasts to your liking with salt and fresh ground pepper. When the oil shimmers and begins to smoke, carefully place chicken breasts into the pan with the skin side down. Sear chicken 2-3 minutes, or until the skin is golden brown. Flip the chicken over and put into the oven. Cook 15-18 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°f. Remove and allow chicken to rest 5-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the mac & cheese. In a 2 qt sauce pot, heat heavy cream and garlic butter until it starts to simmer. Add cooked orzo and Pecorino Romano, and continue to heat, stirring often, until cheese is melted and the macaroni is at the desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper. Cover and keep in a warm place.
Place asparagus on a cookie sheet or into an oven safe dish. Drizzle with 2 tbl of canola oil and season with salt and fresh ground pepper. Roast in the oven for 6-8 minutes, or until asparagus is cooked to your liking. Set aside.
Remove the chicken from the sauté pan and place on top of the roasted asparagus. Place the saute pan on the stove over medium high heat, and sauté proscuitto, stirring often, until crispy, about two minutes. Add chicken stock, and 2 oz garlic butter and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until the sauce is reduced by half, and will coat the back of a spoon. Set aside.
Reheat the asparagus and chicken in the oven for about 3 minutes. Divide the warm mac & cheese between two plates. Do the same for the asparagus. Place the chicken on top of the mac & cheese, and spoon the sauce over the chicken breasts, making sure to divide the proscuitto evenly. Enjoy. Nap.

AUTUMN BAKED APPLES (Serves 6)
- 6 large red baking apples (Rome Beauty, Cortland or Gala, for example)
- 1 lemon, juice and finely grated zest
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 3 packed tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup dried currants
- 1/4 cup broken walnut pieces, toasted
- 6 3-inch whole cinnamon sticks
- 1/2 cup apple cider
- 1/2 cup dark rum (you may substitute a 1/2 cup or either cider or water to make a full cup of liquid)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F Slice off about 1/4-inch of the top of each apple. Scoop out the seeds and core of the apple with a melon baller to make a pocket. Peel off about a 1/2-inch band of the apple’s skin along the upper half of the apple with a vegetable peeler. Brush the peeled part and the interior of the apple with lemon juice.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, lemon zest and sugar. Add the currants and nuts. Place some of the butter mixture and a cinnamon stick in each of the apples. Place the apples in an oven-proof baking dish, just large enough to hold the apples upright. Pour in the cider and rum bake until the apple is tender, about 30 minutes. Baste the apples with the cider/rum mixture with a bulb baster, two or three times during baking.
Serve warm or at room temperature with softly whipped cream or vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.

Walnut & Brie Stuffed Swordfish Steak w/a Carrot & Pear Slaw
For the stuffing:
- 10 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed
- 1 bunch fresh sage, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
For the vinaigrette:
- 1 shallot, minced

Whenever we have a party, we like to serve an assortment of wine and beer and all the fixings for mixed drinks and also a signature drink recipe.
The drink recipe of the night could be based on the theme of the party, the time of year or just something I feel like making! It adds a fun element to the party to have something that you&rsquod like everyone to try.
Easy, tiger&hellip.it tastes harmless but packs a punch. A word of advice from the Southern Living Test Kitchen Professionals who developed this particular recipe: &ldquoDon&rsquot have more than two!&rdquo If you don&rsquot know about the classic hurricane cocktail, now is your opportunity to learn a little history, both cultural and culinary. For starters, the hurricane is a fruity, rum-filled drink that also includes orange and passion fruit juices. If you have ever been to New Orleans, you are sure to have seen this spirited cocktail listed on beverage menus around the city. This cocktail became popular at Pat O'Brien's bar in 1940s New Orleans. Legend has it that O'Brien created the very rummy drink as a means to get rid of the large stock of rum his distributors forced him to buy. O&rsquoBrien debuted his new libation at the 1939 World's Fair in New York City. The cocktail&rsquos name came from the hurricane lamp-shaped glasses that the first drinks were served in. You can still get a great hurricane cocktail at Pat O'Brien's but, if a trip to New Orleans isn&rsquot on your calendar anytime soon, give this recipe a try. The recipe is for a single serving but it&rsquos really easy to double or quadruple. Be sure and shake it in batches. You can find passion fruit juice, either frozen or shelf stable, at your specialty grocery stores. The deep red Luxardo maraschino cherries are available at the liquor store and, if you don&rsquot have white rum, you can use the regular gold rum or simply add in more dark rum.
