When you can’t get to the old French Quarter to enjoy a world famous Pat O’ Brien’s hurricane, you can make your own with this authentic hurricane mix!
Pat O’Brien’s Bar and its legendary fruity rum drink are both an integral part of New Orleans culture and cocktail history. Pat O’s created the original cocktail during World War II when liquors like whiskey were hard to come by but rum was plentiful. The recipe quickly evolved and the tasty treat was served in a special glass shaped like a hurricane lamp, hence the name.
Today the drink is as popular as ever! In fact, the Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane glass is one of the most sought-after souvenirs in New Orleans. We can’t all make it to NOLA every time we crave one, so the kind folks at Pat O’s decided to sell their delicious mix sealed in a moisture proof foil pouch. Sip on a bit of history, no matter where you are.
