When I visited New Orleans years ago, one of my first tourist stops was Pat O’Brien’s Bar in the French Quarter. I needed to drink a famous Hurricane cocktail during my stay.
As I understand it, the Hurricane was invented by Pat O’Brien in the 1940’s. Due to difficulty importing Scotch during WWII, the bar owner bought 50 extra cases of rum. The Hurricane, a rum and passion fruit drink, was a refreshing beverage born of the stock. The drink was served in a classic hurricane glass.
I don’t remember if I got a souvenir glass with the Pat O’Brien’s logo. If I did, I no longer have it. These glasses are from local bars in my town, including one called Macado’s.
This is my entry for JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge.. I wonder if anyone else took this take on the challenge. I’ll have to take a look! Cheers!
