Recipe: Healthy Hurricane
The Hurricane is a fruit-colored relative of the "daiquiri," and it's
credited to New Orleans tavern owner Pat O'Brien. In the 1940s, he created
the fruity concoction and served it in hurricane-lamp-shaped glasses to
give away to sailors. The drink caught on, and it has been a mainstay in
the French Quarter in New Orleans ever since. My version of the Healthy
Hurricane is filled with fresh fruit juices, making it perfect for kids to
enjoy. If you want an alcoholic version, see the note about how much rum to
2 cups orange juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 Crushed ice
1 Fresh cut pineapple, maraschino cherries
Combine orange juice, pineapple juice, pomegranate juice, grapefruit and
lime juice in a large pitcher stirring well. Serve in tall hurricane-style
glasses over crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple and cherries, if desired.
To create an alcoholic version, add 1 to 1 1/2 cups light rum, mixing well.
