Tempests and Flooding and Rain, Oh My!

Another day, another hurricane warning. Before they start lining the animals up 2x2, stock up on provisions at the Spec’s 5th annual Cheese and Wine Festival this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday – 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at their midtown location (2410 Smith Street). Free samples for all!

I don’t know if they sell batteries there, but rum *definitely* qualifies as a non-perishable.

Hurricane
2 ounces light rum
2 ounces dark rum
1 ounce grenadine or passion fruit syrup
1 ounce fresh orange juice
1 ounce sour mix or fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
Orange wedges (for garnish)

Mix all ingredients (except garnish) in a cocktail shaker; shake to dissolve sugar. Add ice cubes to come halfway up the sides of 2 tall glasses. Divide the mixture between the glasses, garnish each with an orange wedge, and serve with a long straw.

Have you ever heard of a drink called the Wife of Bath?
