I love this drink - I make it in a punch bowl for my annual Mardi Gras party. After making it by the recipe I've made some adjustments that make it potent but not killer! I mix 1 1/2 Cups each of light run, dark rum, coconut rum and then 1 cup each of chambord and triple sec and then 4 - 4 1/2 cups of OJ. I went through 4 punch bowls this past Saturday and people were looking for more!! Thanks for the recipe.

I did not care for it. Try Hurricane I instead.

Although traditional hurricanes are a good bit sweeter and a little less strong, this has become my and my husband's favorite! I recently hosted a NOLA themed luncheon and served these as the cocktail. It was a huge hit. Be forewarned! It does pack a huge punch with the final product being about 50 proof (as much liquor as a straight shot of most whiskeys). I've made this as directed with great results, and I suggest trying it that way first before changing the recipe to taste. I've also, though, made a few alterations to taste (and liquor availability). Adding an additional part orange juice doesn't change the taste that much. I've also substituted raspberry schnapps for Chambord when it was out in my local store with no taste change. If you want to make a big batch, as I did for a get together, it does keep very well pre-mixed in a sealed container in the refrigerator for about two days.

This was a lot of liqour, but it ended up being really too sweet for me.

WOW!!! What a kick. I found that adding five parts orange juice really cuts nicely into this drink and makes it drink much smoother. Also, these proportions allow two smaller (12 oz.) servings.

Holy Huricane! I left out the gin and added xtra oj and a can of pineapple juice and they were still pretty deadly! Everyone loved them so much that they couldn't drive home afterwards!

Very tasty but dangerous. Do not drink and drive. A terrific drink to celebrate Fat Tuesday at home!

This was VERY strong. I don't think I will make again. I used OJ and fruit punch and my friend liked alot. I have had better drinks. Too sweet and strong.
