The Hurricane cocktail is a popular drink that hails from the city of New Orleans. It was created in the 1940s and has since become a staple in bars and restaurants across the country. Its signature red hue and tropical flavor make it a fun and refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot summer day. 

Many people associate the Hurricane with the famous Bourbon Street in New Orleans, where it can be found in many of the lively bars and restaurants. The drink’s name is said to have originated from its hurricane lamp-like shape, and it has become a symbol of the spirit and resilience of the city.
