Happy Hour: Hurricane

Bring a little Mardi Gras spirit into your kitchen this weekend by mixing up a classic hurricane cocktail. Created at Pat O'Brien's bar in New Orleans, this drink is potent, yet incredibly tasty — almost like fruit punch.

Looks nothing like the Hurricanes I had in NO. They were red/deep pink. But I'd probably enjoy this one just as much.

Huh, I would've thought that there was more alcohol than that. They're kind of lethal.
