About our Hurricane
The cocktail culture is rich and ancient in New Orleans, as evidenced by our Sazerac and Vieux Carré recipes. Here is another, dating from the 1940's, with a sulphurous history: the Hurricane is said to have been born in the clandestine bar of Pat O'Brien, who was trying to sell off his stocks of bad rums! It is traditionally served in a round, short-stemmed glass, now known as the Hurricane glass, so long has the tropical creation of “Pat” gone down in history.
