Looking for recipes for an upcoming party. Tried this one out on my hubby. He said it was really good and he's not much for sweet drinks at all! So- this is one I'm definitely serving at my party!

I did not care for this recipe. Noting like what you get on Bourbon street. If you never gone to Pat O'Brien's you'll know this isn't close, no other place but New Orleans service up the real deal. All you need for the PERFECT Hurricane is Fruit punch and Meyer's rum, some orange slices and a couple cherries and that's it.

I have so far intoxicated everyone who drinks one... Hard to shake with the lemon-lime drink. I add that after the first three (rum, lime, passionfruit) have mixed. I'm serving again soon!

This is a strong drink so we turned them into cordials for sipping....we had great stemmed shot glasses that we put a thin half of an orange ring into with a cherry and the cocktail...later we served it over ice and then filled it also half way with fruit punch tp take a little of the "Edge off" was a great cocktail and will make them again.

These were REALLY strong. Wow! I added about 1/2 shot of grenidine (sp?) to soften it. Packs a punch!

Really sweet sticky drink. Don't spill any on the counter or you'll be stuck in the kitchen!!! HAHA

I had never made a cocktail before (eyeballing a rum and coke doesn't count, does it?). This was very easy, and my friends pounded them.
