Pat O'Brien's is credited with inventing the now-famous hurricane cocktail during World War II, and offers their own recipe for home-mixologists and professional bartenders alike to whip up in their own kitchens or bars. The original Pat O'Brien's New Orleans hurricane cocktail packs a powerful punch of alcohol, using 5 1/2 ounces of booze for each drink. A variety of liquors are used in this tall concoction, along with juices and red grenadine.
