It’s 5 o’clock somewhere

Isn’t it strange when you talk about something, (Hurricane – drink not storm) one day, (yesterday) and then something else happens that reinforces that same thing, (Alan Jackson singing about Hurricanes – drinks not storms).

Pour me somethin’ tall an’ strong,
Make it a “Hurricane” before I go insane.
It’s only half-past twelve but I don’t care.
It’s five o’clock somewhere.

For those of us that have not been to New Orleans, (and even those that have), but have not indulged in one of these bad boys, a Hurricane is a drink of epic proportions. It is an interesting story how this drink was created at its original location of Pat O’Briens. Essentially it is a 50/50 mix of juice and alcohol.

How to Make an authentic Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane
In a 26 oz. Hurricane glass, mix

  • 4 oz. of Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane Rum or a good Amber/Gold Rum
  • 4 oz. of Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane Mix
  • Fill with crushed ice
  • Garnish with an orange and cherry

So if it 5 o’clock where you live, and even if it isn’t – here’s to some nice summer days, sipping cool drinks.
