According to Babble.com: "The hurricane drink was originally named after the lamp-shaped glasses they came in when served at Pat O’Brien’s bar in New Orleans in the 1940s. Made from light and dark rum, passion fruit juice and lime juice, these sweet drinks caught on and became a Mardi Gras mainstay in the French Quarter."

2 ounces dark rum
2 ounces passion fruit juice
1 ounce orange juice
half a lime, juiced
1 tablespoon grenadine
Directions: Shake all ingredients together with ice. Strain into lamp-shade-style glasses. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and lemon and lime wedges.
