February 2022 - What's in the Box?

The Hurricane is one of the first prohibition era cocktails, originally consisting of different rums and orange juice. Now we have put a Tipsy spin on it and The Hurricane is a cocktail consisting of a superior white rum, aged dark rum, passionfruit syrup, Valencia orange juice and fresh lime.

What started as a simple “spirit and mixer” drink has been turned into a cocktail that should really be featured in more bars around!

Brighten up your February with this beloved old classic!
