This Christmas season is obviosuly a little different than any of us expected or had planned, so, in light of this we’ve teamed up with our sister venues across Manchester & Leeds to bring you a Festive Drinks recipe guide!

This recipe, comes from our Soul Sister bar, Smokestack Leeds.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing some of our suggestions for alternative Christmas Drinks you can make at home or, fingers crossed, enjoy yourself at Blind Tyger Manchester.

HURRICANE

The most popular signature cocktail at Smokestack 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.
