The most classic of Mardi Gras cocktails is, of course, the Hurricane. Made with rum, fruit juice, grenadine, simple syrup, maraschino cherries, and more rum, it's boozy, delicious, and famous for a reason. But while you can't go wrong with this standby, I challenge you to step up your game and expand your cocktail horizons this Fat Tuesday. And don't worry — all of the these drinks still have either the rum or fruit juice of your beloved Hurricane. I wouldn't try to ruin your Mardi Gras!
Fine, I’ll let you have a Hurricane. You can make one at home with this Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane Cocktail Mix. Pick some up ASAP.
