Emily G’s out of Georgia came up with this exciting rendition of this infamous cocktail, using their delicious Strawberry Pineapple Jam in place of passion fruit juice, which is often added to a Hurricane for a fruity punch of flavor. There are a lot of variations of the Hurricane out there, but I am betting not many of them list jam as an ingredient.
Some may be skeptical of adding jam to a cocktail, but jam is actually a pretty common ingredient and used around the country. Two that I really like are Jamie Boudreau’s Beauregard’s Breakfast using blueberry jam at his Seattle cocktail bar Canon and a Sparkling Jam Cocktail recipe from Maggie Battista of Eat Boutique. So give it a try, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
