Husbands Hurricane

Day 1

(5 stars out of 5)

The hurricane cocktail is the absolute perfect blend of 3
different rums and 3 different juices.  It's delicious and refreshing flavor will have you back for more!

Day One of my Year of Cocktails and I didn't have to search far to find my first cocktail recipe!

My husband has his own version of a Hurricane that I MUST say is absolutely awesome!

Now my husband isn't one for "measuring" anything.

Like ANYTHING anything.

He just adds and pours and announces how much he's put in.

Me on the other hand, I have my measuring cups, spoons and shot glasses with me and ready to use so that I know exactly how much of each item I'm adding in.

Tonight's drink I give 5 stars out of 5!  

This is absolutely an amazing drink.  

There are quite a few different ingredients to make it......maybe all of the different ingredients is why I've never ventured away from my "vodka cran" and "rum & coke" 2-ingredient cocktails when I'm making a drink?  I think too many ingredients used to scare me, but not anymore!  I'm a cocktail adventurer now!  Bring on the multiple ingredients.


 Here is a photo of the end product:

 Here is a photo of the main ingredients:

OK, so here's the recipe for "Husbands Hurricane Cocktail":
·                     6 ice cubes (see I told you I like to measure and know exactly what I'm adding into my cocktails)
·                     1/2 of a shot of Myers's Rum-original dark  (yes it's supposed to have the s's in Myers's....I had to double check)
·                     1 shot of Malibu Caribbean Rum with coconut liqueur
·                     1/2 of a shot of Bacardi Rum (the clear one)
·                     1tsp of Lime Juice
·                     1tsp of Cointreau
·                     2 shots of Pineapple Juice 
·                     2 shots of Orange Juice (you can use the kind and pulpiness you like, mine has to be Pulp Free)
·                     1 Tbs of Bar Syrup (which is the same thing as Simple Syrup)
·                   1/4 ounce grenadine

In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the grenadine.  Shake and dump everything into a tall cocktail glass.  Then swirl the grenadine into your cocktail for a cool effect.

This is definitely going to be one of my new regular drinks to that I know how!  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Hello! My name is Jen and I am The Cocktail Lady. I am a married mom of 4 who loves creating and trying new cocktails.


  1. yay! welcome to the blogosphere! I'm excited to follow along and learn new drinks. :-)

  2. I made this one this weekend - good stuff! I thought it would be sweet enough for me without the simple syrup so I left it out. The pineapple juice and orange juice sweetened it up nicely. I'll definitely make this one again.

    1. Oh Jan I'm glad you like this one! This is my absolute "Go To" cocktail when I just can't think of what I want. My husband will make these by the pitcher full when we have get togethers. It's a definite crowd pleaser!

    2. Your husband definitely made a winner! :)
