A real Hurricane Cocktail made with natural ingredients and not the chemical mix is a divine thing to the palate as we all know and have also written about. And so one day i got the chance to come up with a twist of this drink which will have to serve as an appetizer before the christmas holiday drinks that are on the way.



3 oz Smith & Cross
1 oz orange juice
0.5 oz fresh lime juice
0.5 oz fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup passion fruit juice, or 1 tablespoon passion fruit syrup
1 oz simple syrup
1 teaspoon hibiscus grenadine
Stemmed black cherries, lime slice and fresh mint to garnish
Cracked or crushed ice.

Half fill a Hurricane or tall glass with crushed or cracked ice. Shake all ingredients and pour unstrained into the glass. Fill up with more ice if needed and garnish with a lime slice, fresh mint and stemmed black cherries.


That`s all folks, probably the shortest blog post ever from me..but like i said, its an appetizer.

  1. Just made one of these, really good. The lemon/lime are a bit buried (could probably use 1oz of either, lime might show through more) but the S&C, orange, & PF all show through well with the grenadine hanging out in the background. Definitely something to make again.

  2. This sounds delicious, thanks! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe out. Since your post a few months ago I’ve really be looking at new ways to use Smith & Cross (probably my favorite rum “find” from 2010). I use it a lot in Navy Grog variants and Mai-Tais, but I’m going to open it up a bit more.
