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.


Hurricane
2    ounces Goslings Rum
1    ounce lemon juice
1    ounce passion fruit syrup*

*passion fruit syrup:
2    parts passion fruit purée
2    parts sugar
1    part water
Bring to a boil and then remove from flame


As served at Felipe’s Taqueria, 301 N. Peters St., and 6215 S. Miro St.
