Every week we’re showcasing Hot Christmas Cocktails that you can make at home to get you into the festive spirit!
This week we’ve borrowed a recipe from our sister bar Smokestack Leeds!
Smokestack’s most popular signature cocktail is the Hurricane. It’s a New Orleans classic that delivers everything you want in a rum punch. The lip-smacking tartness from passionfruit and lime, soft sweetness from the pineapple, aromatics from pimento dram and a generous kick of rum.
In New Orleans, the Hurricane is the perfect cooler for that Louisiana humidity. Over here we are always chasing our infamously short summer and so need something for those colder nights.
You can check out more history on the Hurricane in our Cocktail Showcase here
