Where did the hurricane cocktail originate?

The creation of the Hurricane cocktail, relative of the daiquiri, is credited to New Orleans tavern owner Pat O’Brien. The bar allegedly started as a speakeasy called Mr. O’Brien’s Club Tipperary and the password was “storm’s brewin.”

What is in a hurricane punch bowl?

The standard hurricane cocktail is made up of the following:

  • One part dark rum dark rum
  • One part light rum white rum
  • Passion fruit syrup
  • Lemon juice

In my hurricane punch bowl, we’re replacing the passion fruit syrup with blood orange syrup, just because i’m over the moon for this gorgeous fruit!  You still get that gorgeous layering that is beautifully displayed in Solo’s 18 oz Eco-Forward clear plastic cup!

How do you make a hurricane punch bowl?

Start by slicing Blood oranges, lemons, and limes for a pretty garnish for the top of the bowl.

Next, combine all of your ingredients in the bowl:

  • 16 ounces of red fruit punch
  • 16 ounces blood orange juice
  • 6 oz frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 2/3 cups light rum
  • 1 2/3 cups dark rum

Sir to combine. Place Blood orange, lime and lemon slices, maraschino cherries on op of the bowl as a garnish.  If you want to be really fancy, create an ice mold with the citrus slices on top.  Let the water and citrus freeze solid in a bundt pan and place it in your hurricane punch bowl!
