Mardi Gras Drink Recipe: Hurricane Dragon

Hurricane DragonMardi Gras time is here again, and it always makes us think about hurricanes. We've only been to New Orleans once, but the frozen concoctions we drank while wandering Bourbon Street will always be a high point...especially since it seemed there was a hurricane machine on every street corner. And, now that we've (pretty much) taken Bourbon Street back from that other hurricane that was on everyone's mind, it's time to come out with some tasty drinks.

In honor of today being Mardi Gras Day, we've found a recipe for a Hurricane Dragon, which is a hurricane with an Asian twist, at Cocktail Times.

Hurricane Dragon

- 1 1/5 oz mango juice
- 2 oz Remy Martin V.S.O.P
- 1 tsp of mashed fresh ginger
- 1 tsp sugar
- Splash of lemon juice
- Splash of grenadine
- Splash of tonic water
Garnish: Slice of ginger root

Muddle diced ginger root with sugar. Add lemon juice, mango juice and Cognac. Shake and strain over ice into a highball or hurricane glass until three-quarters full. Then add a splash of grenadine, fill the glass with tonic water. Garnish with a slice of singer root. (Cocktail created by: Alex Ott)
