This tropical hurricane cocktail will have you feeling like you’re on a Caribbean island. Light & dark rum combine with orange and pineapple juices to make a refreshing fruity drink with a punch.
Well, Mardi Gras has passed but the Florida Keys are beckoning soon and the “Conchs” love a good hurricane down there. No, not that kind of hurricane! Just the kind with lots of rum in it!
If you’ve ever been to the Keys, they are laid back and tropical. It never fails to amaze me at the feeling that I’ve traveled far from the mainland and have somehow arrived on a Caribbean island. And this drink is full of all those island flavors, orange juice, pineapple juice, a little pomegranate grenadine syrup and, of course, rum!
Both light and dark rum give this just the right punch. Word of warning, through experience, this drink sneaks up on you with its potency so just relax and take them slow and easy.
This cocktail can be made with store bought grenadine or you can make your own. The homemade version is so much better than the bottled (read that as no high fructose corn syrup) and only takes about 25 minutes. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
