Bad weather calories don't count! Hurricane parties allow you to eat like you're 8 again. It's time to stock up on:

You may be eating like a kid, but that doesn't mean you have to drink like you're one. After you've wiped out your local market of water, make sure you have all the ingredients to make a Hurricane.

 
How to make a Hurricane cocktail:
 
  • 2 oz Light rum 
  • 2 oz Dark rum
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz Orange juice
  • ½ oz Passion fruit juice
  • 1 tbsp Simple syrup
  •  tbsp Grenadine
Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a hurricane glass filled with ice. Garnish with a cheery and an orange slice.

 
Pro-Tip
 
To keep things cold longer, turn your fridge to the coldest setting a day or two before the hurricane hits. If the power goes out your food will stay cold longer. Keeping the doors closed as much as possible also helps.
