Juice of 1/2 lime
Cherries and orange slice to garnish
Ice cubes

Interesting tidbits of the origin of this famous
hurricane drink:

The creation of this passion-colored relative of a
Daiquiri drink is credited to Pat O'Brien. He is
reported to have invented the Hurricane in the 1940s in
New Orleans. Rumors say he needed to get rid of all the
rum that Southern distributors forced him to buy before
he could get a few cases of other spirits. He poured
the concocosion into hurricane-lamp-shaped glasses and
gave it away to sailors. The drink caught on, and it's
been part of the celebration ever since.

Pat O'Brien operated a speakeasy during prohibition
known as, "Mr. O'Brien's Club Tipperary". The password
to get in was, "storm's brewin'". In 1933, after the
repeal of prohibition, he moved across the street,
opened Pat O'Briens, and later down to the present
location at 718 St. Peter, in the French Quarter.
During W.W.II, it was difficult to get whiskey, but rum
was in ample supply. With the help of the liquor
salesman, this cocktail was born. It is served in a 26
oz. Hurricane glass, which is named after the shape of
a hurricane lamp and the drink.
