Thirsty Thursday--Hurricanes

One of my favorite places in New Orleans is the piano bar at Pat O'Brien's in the French Quarter.
I think that everyone should go there and experience it at least once in their lifetime.
It's full of singing, drinking, and everyone having a great time.

Their signature drink is the 

I've had many in New Orleans, but there is just something about them at Pat O's.
They just taste better.

I usually drink only one (well, sometimes more) because they are completely dangerous.
The first one is a bit strong, but after it they all taste like juice.
That's the dangerous part.
(Then you start dancing on the tables, etc....)

This recipe is for ONE Hurricane.
It's definitely not as strong, but just as fun and refreshing.

The Hurricane

2 ounces dark rum
2 ounces white rum
1/2 ounce grenadine
1/2 ounce orange juice
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup
orange slice for garnish
maraschino cherry for garnish

In a cocktail shaker full of ice, add all the ingredients but the garnish and shake until well combined. Fill a hurricane glass with ice and pour mixture over.  Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.

Drink, repeat, enjoy--then dance on a table,
