Rock you like a Hurricane!

How could we have a Mardi Gras feast and not have hurricanes?

We couldn't!! Actually... I've never been to Mardi Gras, so I really don't know. But I decided it was a MUST HAVE for our party!


Jon is the Bar Master at our house, so this duty falls to him!

We were out of a lot of staples and had to make a trip to the state store for some basic liquors... one of them being white rum. While perusing the rum section, Jon noticed Mount Gay Rum Barbados. That was the rum of choice of Robert, one of the characters in AC Weisbecker's Cosmic Banditos. So of course, that was the rum Jon picked. It turns out the rum is really good!! So is the book! You should read it!

Anyway... back to the hurricanes.

Hector's Hurricanes (Hector & Jon are one in the same, incase you were confused)
1 part amaretto
1 part gin
1 part light rum
1 part vodka
1 part triple sec
1/2 part 151 rum
1/4 part grenadine
1 2/3 part sweetened pink grapefruit juice
1 2/3 part sweetened pineapple juice

Pour all ingredients over ice by the glass or pitcher!

A little goes a LONG way with this potent fruity drink! It doesn't take long before you and your friends are standing around the kitchen singing Rock You Like a Hurricane!!

I remember the first time I had a hurricane - it was like punch, literalll and figuratively! My head felt like a giant bowling ball for the rest of the evening. It tasted really good, though! 8-)
