Mint Hurricane Cocktail

Here is a twist on the traditional New Orleans drink from the 1940s. This Mint Hurricane Cocktail has everything from your traditional hurricane drink – rum and grenadine – and adds a splash of mint for an exceptionally refreshing summer cocktail. Serve it up at a cocktail party or a backyard BBQ. Serve over ice in a rocks glass or a hurricane glass.

Did you know this drink was created in a bar to get rid of less popular rum? I find that hilarious and ingenious. It reminds me of my mother making casseroles to get rid of leftovers. LOL Well you can use bad rum or you can use good rum, but this drink is all about the mint simple syrup. You can buy some or make your own! Simple syrup is just water and sugar boiled and stirred until sugar dissolves. You can add any flavor (mint leaves, rosemary, etc.) to the boiling mixture to create your own flavored simple syrup.
