I've been gathering the ingredients for this since traveling to New Orleans last October. I love Pomegranates and Passion Fruit and figured that making a from scratch Hurrcane would be pretty tasty. Since Pomegranates are now kind of trendy as an anti-oxidant it isn't that hard to find Pomegranate juice. Tougher to find Passion Fruit Nectar. Fortunately, some of the natural and gourmet markets here carry the Looza brand of fruit Nectars. Ok, it is kind of red-brown, so it's not the prettiest drink; but, it is really tasty.
1 jigger Pomegranate juice (Knudsen's Just Pomegranate)
1 jigger Passion Fruit Nectar (Looza)
Juice of 1 lime
2 jiggers Amber Rum
1 jigger Dark Rum
1 oz Simple Syrup (or to taste, I like my drinks small, tart, and intense)
Shake in an iced cocktail shaker and strain into two glasses.
Pre-Hurricane, my wife said, "What is it with you and this cocktail thing? I just don't think I like them." Post-Hurricane, she said, "More!"
I really shouldn't put this recipe up. They are just too tasty.
