Blood Red Rum CocktailBlood Red Rum Cocktail

The Hurricane is a classic cocktail of New Orleans. It is sweet, cool, fruity and deliciously addictive. Make a lasting impression on your friends with our tasty version! We've cut out a some of the sugar dyed it bright red, making it perfect to sip on while watching season 6 of True Blood.

Ingredients:

4.5 ounces light rum (Flor de Cana extra dry white rum)

3 oz dark rum (we like Myer's)

6 oz passion fruit juice (Ceres passion fruit juice)

3 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

1.5 oz orange juice

¾ oz honey

3 oz grenadine (we like Sonoma Syrup Company pomegranate grenadine)

Pinch of salt

3 cups of ice

Red food dye (optional)

Orange slice for garnish



Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Make sure not to over blend or your ice will melt! Add 10-20 drops of red food coloring if you want your drink to be True Blood red. Serve in hurricane glasses and garnish with paper umbrellas and orange slices. Serves 2
