Texas Hurricane

Recipe by  

"This beverage is known for its 'sneak up and blow you away' power. There are many different versions, but I believe you will find mine a very good blend of rums, other alcoholic beverages and fruit juices. If you can walk after two of these...well...you just think you can. Everything is bigger and better in Texas -- just try this and see."

  1. Fill a hurricane glass with ice. Pour in the rum, coconut rum, vodka, gin, triple sec, orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine. Stir well with a bar spoon, then pour the 151 rum over the back of the spoon to float the liquor on top of the drink. Garnish the glass with orange, lime, and a cherry.
  2. Sip with a straw from the bottom for a 'sneak up on you' punch or sip from the top for a 'knock you down' twister.

I read the description and decided this would be a drink best sipped slowly and while lying down! Good drink use quality products for a quality drink!

Perfect hurricane! Just like we remember from the beach, only stronger :) We didn't want to buy special hurricane glasses, so one-half recipe fit nicely in a standard wine glass. I'm a 150 lb woman, and after 2 wine glasses (1 recipe) I was silly drunk! I had a third wine glass, which caused a mild hangover the next morning, so I told my husband to stop me at 2 wine glasses next time. This recipe has a fantastic kick:alcohol-taste ratio, and for the second batch I enjoyed adding another 1/2 ounce each of the flavored liqueurs to make it even smoother. ATTENTION anyone who hates even the slightest taste of alcohol: this recipe is not for you! Stick to the recipes which have a higher juice:liquor ratio, and leave this recipe for the grown-ups! ;)

I left out the gin and 151....these are really strong without them and I don't like gin, so I didn't use it. I used Captain Morgan for the rum, Malibu for the coconut rum and Titos Vodka. I also added an oz of Passion Fruit Juice per drink. It adds alittle more tropical flavor and is yummy. I garnished each drink with a slice of a star fruit and a marachino cherry:) soooo good!

You weren't kidding when you said if you think you can walk away after two, you just think you can. I'm embarassed to admit I had to be practically carried to the bedroom after these wild hurricanes. The flavor of the drink was very good, just stick to one though! :)
