 The Hurricane

This cocktail is proof that necessity is the mother of invention. When faced with a glut of rum in the 1940s, New Orleans bar owner Benson O’Brien came up with a brilliant, but simple solution – design a rum-heavy cocktail using local ingredients.


The Essentials

100ml of Dark rum (or light, it’s up to you)

50ml of Passion fruit syrup

50ml of Lemon juice

1 passionfruit

Mint for garnish


Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker.  Add some ice and shake vigorously to mix.  Strain into a glass, add a little of the passionfruit pulp and garnish with mint.  A little bit like your own rum punch and perfect for a spring day.  Enjoy!


Brunch Cocktail – Toast and Marmalade


Enjoy this classic breakfast at any time of the day, not just brunch.  Inspired by the tried-and-true combination of jam on toast, this cocktail perfectly translates breakfast to the cocktail glass.


50ml Bourbon

25ml Drambuie

A teaspoon of honey

25ml of lemon juice (fresh is best but don’t get too stressed)

1 heaping orange marmalade

2 dashes of bitters


Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker, mix them well and pour the contents through a strainer into a glass. Garnish with a  slice of orange.  Sit back and enjoy your liquid breakfast.


Raspberry Daiquiri

This daiquiri recipe is made with fresh, natural ingredients. Cool down with this beautiful warm weather cocktail.

Ingredients per cocktail

10 raspberries

20ml orange liqueur

60ml ounces rum

½ teaspoon raw sugar

one lime, juiced

For the rim

1 small lime wedge



 Prepare your glass by running a lime wedge around the rim of a martini glass. Dip the top of the glass into a plate sprinkled with sugar. In a mixing glass, muddle the raspberries with the lime juice and sugar. Add rum and lots of ice. Shake well. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a martini glass. The sieve helps catch the raspberry seeds. Garnish with a raspberry.


 Gin and Watermelon Punch


750ml Dry Gin

750ml watermelon juice

375ml lemon juice

375 ml agave nectar

Watermelon chunks

750 ml sparkling wine


This cocktail couldn’t be simpler to make.  Add all the ingredients into a bowl and stir well to ensure agave liquifies with other contents. Refrigerate to chill and top with sparkling wine.
