How to make a Hurricane Cocktail | Epic Guys Bartending
    The hurricane is a sweet alcoholic drink made with rum, passion fruit syrup, lemon juice and grenadine. 
    
    The creation of this drink is credited to New Orleans tavern owner Pat O'Brien.  In the 1940s, he needed to create a new drink to help him get rid of all of the less popular rum that local distributors forced him to buy before he could get a few cases of more popular liquors such as scotch and whiskey. He poured the concoction into hurricane lamp--shaped glasses and gave it away to sailors. The drink caught on, and it has been a mainstay in the French Quarter ever since.
    
    This was shot shortly before Epic-Guy Randy went on vacation to Washington D.C. and Ocean City Maryland.  As Hurricane Arthur Approached, Randy was finishing the video at night, watching the weather to see if Hurricane Arthur would spoil his 4th of July plans!!!

    1. Few tips.. Never use that cheap store bought Grenadine.. It's high fructose, junk syrup.. Make it!.. Go to the store and buy Langers 100% pomegranate juice.. Mix equal parts juice and granulated sugar and that is real Grenadine.. Also, never over squeeze your limes, lemons or oranges.. Otherwise, you're beginning to squeeze the peel which is bitter.. Just gently squeeze to release juice then stop..

    2. Looks great except for the Meyer's… Next time you make one, use Gosling's Black Seal for your dark rum – it's got a great molasses flavor that adds a lot to a Hurricane I think.

    3. Too much yacking (2yrs later)…no one is having sex after 2 of those. More like people will be passing out, lol. 4oz of rum in one drink!?… 1 oz of each rum is probably the correct pour. Two 4 oz drinks and people start seeing pink elephants or start slapping the shit outta each other!!

    4. New videos please. I enjoy your presentation compared to the other barrage of goofy and showy drink videos on YouTube. Straightforward videos on building drinks are much appreciated. And thank you.
