Hurricane Cocktail

I need to  start off by apologizing for being late with Thirsty Thursday for the very first time.  I have always managed to make and post Thursday cocktails up until this week.  It has been “one of those weeks”, so I hope you understand!  :-)

Anticipating the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, I deemed it appropriate to make nothing but a Hurricane Cocktail for this week!  :-)

Where I live on the coast of eastern North Carolina (Morehead City), I am blessed with beautiful views and sunsets.

The wildlife always amazes me.  I’m not very good at taking photos of wildlife, but this is the best I could do to show you how fortunate I am to live here!

There is always “give and take”, along with compromise, in everything worthwhile.  Nothing is ever perfect.  So having to endure a hurricane every now and then is worth the priceless beauty of where I call home.

The ingredients in this cocktail are light rum, dark rum, passion fruit juice, orange juice, lime juice, simple syrup and grenadine.  Most other recipes instruct to strain into a hurricane glass, but I chose to keep my ice; it’s up to ‘ya.  This cocktail is definitely worth the effort, and I will be anticipating the arrival of Hurricane Sandy while I am sipping on one.  :-)

Okay, time to go hunker down and ride out this little storm…cheers to the weekend!
