Just like NOLA! I scaled down the drink since it was for only one. I left out the simple syrup because hurricanes in general are too sweet for me. It was very good indeed! Made for ZWT5 - RRR.

Awesome! Made multiple pitchers for my neighborhood holiday progressive party. Everyone loved these and I was asked for the recipe. We omitted both the grenadine and simple syrup based on reviews because we don't like sweet drinks. Obviously no one missed them! Thanks for a winner!

This is a delicious killer cocktail! I love the juiciness of it and the rum is the complimentary but not overpowering. I made it as written except for cutting out the simple syrup and using half the grenadine. I don't understand the 1/2 cup serving designation on the serving size. Making two we had two 16 oz tumblers filled to the brim before adding ice, so we split one and saved the other for another night. I don't know if it was all the sugar from the juices or what but both nights we had these I had a really difficult time going to sleep - I guess I'll be drinking them earlier in the day from now on! Thanks for sharing alli! Made for ZWT 9 by one of the Appliance Killers.

Congratulations on your 2010 Football Pool win...I tried this recipe and LOVED it. I think I even like it better than the one's from Pat O's and being a Louisianian, that is almost treason around here. LOVED the addition of the pom juice!
Certainly impressed the friends I mixed these up for.

The Real Deal! Best cocktail I've had in a long time; this has me planning how to drink some more and take some aspirin before I retire to avoid a hangover (we don't drink much). Let me see -- who was the designated driver? I didn't have the patience to make simple syrup, so I added half the amount for simple syrup as the amount of confectioner's sugar and stirred until it dissolved (triumph!). Made half a batch, which will make 2 Category 5 Hurricanes (very big glass like the souvenir glass from Commander's Palace where Emeril was head chef). Such a wonderful, dangerous drink, it brings back memories of my last trip to New Orleans. Thanks for sharing this recipe, alligirl! Made for ZWT5 for the French/Cajun/Creole Region as "Slice of Lime Babe" of the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes. Excellent drink!
