Laissez les bons temps rouler with this iconic New Orleans cocktail. The perfect setting for a New Orleans Hurricane is in Pat O’Brien’s courtyard in the French Quarter overlooking the flaming fountain. The next best place is at home or a Mardi Gras party enjoying this rum based cocktail laced with tropical fruits. However, don’t let its sweetness fool you – it can definitely knock you sideways if you’re not careful!
You can make your own simple syrup by combining equal parts of water and granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved. Cool completely. Store in jar with lid.
