Hurricane
So pretty.. and strong at the same time. The taste is more palette-able than the Mint Julep in my opinion, but be careful. Just because it taste good doesn’t mean it won’t do damage.

Make your own:

  • 2 oz light rum
  • 2 oz dark rum
  • 2 oz passion fruit juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon simple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon grenadine
  • Garnish: orange slice and cherry

mint julep.

Mint Julep
Refreshing and potent, this one is fully loaded. The Bourbon was too strong for my taste but G seem to enjoy it.

Make your own:

  • 2 1/2 oz. Bourbon
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 10 to 15 Mint Leaves
  • 3 Mint Sprigs

hand grenade.

Glad we ate before getting one of these! It’s quite lethal. Get ’em blended like a slushy.

Make your own:

  • 1 gallon hand grenade mix
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 3 litres melon schnapps (any kind wil do)
  • 3 litre vodka
  • 2 litres everclear (grain alcohol)
