This Florida Hurricane Cocktail is a take on the famous drink served at Pat O’Brien’s restaurant in New Orleans. It’s fruity, tropical, and has a serious kick to it with ½ cup (yes, a half cup) of alcohol in it.
I am not sure why the one thing not canceled in 2020 is hurricane season! Between COVID, quarantine, protests, and Lord knows what I’m forgetting, hurricanes are just more than I can handle right now.
So imagine the stress levels when we thought Hurricane Isaias was going to make landfall in Florida. Well, this big cocktail is the result of that stress. The coconut rum, guava juice, and pineapple juice make it taste so tropical. Trust me, after one of these, the stress was gone and I was hoping to see Jim Cantore, from The Weather Channel, bracing himself against the wind whipping around on our little beach.
