Pat O'Brien's Hurricane Punch A copy cat recipe from the famous Pat O'Brien's located in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The punch calls for passion fruit cocktail mix, lemon juice, and dark rum. All mixed up festively in a hurricane glass.
Rich & Spicy Bloody Mary Mix Skip the bottled Bloody Mary mix next time and make your own. This makes a big batch but it can be scaled down easily. It has just the right balance of spices and is delicious enough to drink without the vodka too.
