Happy Hour: Weekend with Earl

Sep 3, 2010

Aquascutum Packaway Raincoat (Saks, $180)

Well ladies, it looks like our new friend Earl may drop in for a visit this weekend, but don’t let him ruin your Labor Day beach plans. Instead, try this New Orleans classic, the hurricane. You can ask anybody who’s ever been to Pat O’Brien’s, or anywhere else in the French Quarter for that matter, and they will undoubtedly tell you that this drink is guaranteed to liven up any soggy weekend plans. Just don’t forget your raincoat.

 

2 oz. light rum
2 oz. passion fruit juice
1 oz. orange juice
1 tbl. simple syrup
splash of grenadine
2 oz. dark rum
pineapple chunks, maraschino cherries, lime slices, orange slices

Combine the first five ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake . Pour into whatever glass will accommodate that amount of booze since most of us don’t own hurricane glasses. Float the dark rum on top and garnish with fruits of your choice – I really don’t think a cocktail umbrella or crazy, curly straw would hurt either.

Drink through a straw from the bottom for the full effect – starts off calm, but gets quite stormy… get it?


Happy Hour

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
