The hurricane was invented in the 1940s during World War 2 at Pat O’Brians in New Orleans. While not actually a tiki drink it’s ocean related and thats good enough. Story goes that the folks who controlled the import of European spirits jacked the prices way up and set conditions that for each bottle of European spirits purchased, a certain amount of the more plentiful but less desirable Caribbean rums had to be purchased too.
With tons of unused rum about, the owner of Pat O’Brians decided to mix a drink using as much of it as possible. The result is this massive and very boozy drink with a lot of juice and sweetener to hide the whopping 120 mls (4 oz) of rum. This will get you drunk, and drunk is the best way to experience New Orleans.
