  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 oz amaretto almond liqueur
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 oz 151 proof rum
  • 1 t grenadine
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz pineapple juice


  • Combine the vodka, gin, rum, amaretto and triple sec into a tall glass filled with ice.
  • Fill the remainder of the glass with equal parts of grapefruit juice and pineapple juice. Finish by adding the grenadine and serve with a small straw.


There is a lot of alcohol in this recipe.  If I'm making this for a party I usually use 1/2 the amount of all the spirits called for, and the drink is still delicious, just not knock-you-on-your-ass strong.

      Thank you for this! I’ve been looking for a real hurricane recipe, and all the ones I find have only rum. But I know when I go to Pat O’s the bartender pours six different clear liquors in it and they’re not all rum.
