Cocktail Recipe for the New Year

SARA ESSEX BRADLEY PHOTOGRAPH

The New Year is a time to remember past happiness and a chance to plan for the future. Maybe we can even make good on matters that have gone off track.

A Hurricane – the drink, not the meteorological event – is one of those famous cocktails that has had great success but at a cost. New Orleanians have had their fling with the sweet, rum-laden concoction. Some choose to not just shun the drink but to decry it.

wMake a few and serve them to friends, but don’t tell them the name of the drink. Then let them know they have been enjoying an honest-to-goodness Hurricane – an old friend.
