New Orleans Inspired: Hurricane Cocktail Recipe

I’ve been on the road non-stop lately. Like throw out the dirty clothes in my suitcase into a mound in my room, refill suitcase, and head back out kinda non-stop traveling. Traveling is my jam though and all have been great adventures so I’m loving it. If you’re an Instagram fan of ours you might already know how much travel means to us here at Take Time for Style. And one of our favorite cities to visit is New Orleans. After 5 days in the Big Easy, I definitely left feeling inspired by the unique culture, food and fun this historic city has to offer! Plus, the people in New Orleans are just so warm and good natured. They really want you to feel at home in their city and I so appreciate that!

I may have tried to fully assimilate and adopt one of the local drinks as my own. Haha! I probably had one too many Hurricanes while I was there. Sorry not sorry! I’m a sucker for a good cocktail and the Hurricane just tastes like vacation. I don’t know about you friends, but what I eat and drink on vacation affects how good a time I have. The foodie in me lives for good food and cocktails. And New Orleans definitely doesn’t disappoint in either of those areas.

Supposedly the Hurricane cocktail recipe was created in the 1940’s at what is now Pat O’Briens. These tasty bevs typically come in fun hurricane lamp shaped glasses (hence the name) and are not to be missed while in New Orleans. They are pretty sweet, and powerful to boot, so one or two tops is feels like the perfect amount to indulge in on a hot sticky night. And since they were my favorite drink to enjoy while I was on my trip, I decided to whip up a batch of my own Hurricane cocktail at home. The color didn’t turn out quite as red as what I was served in NOLA, but they tasted just the same! That’s all that counts right? YUM!
