The Story of the Hurricane Cocktail:
The Hurricane cocktail has its roots in the French Quarter of New Orleans, dating back to the 1940s. It was created at the famous Pat O'Brien's bar as a way to use up excess rum during World War II when whiskey was in short supply. The cocktail quickly gained popularity and has since become a staple in the New Orleans cocktail scene.
