DOTW: Hoptical Storm Anxiety

The idea for this drink came to me while i was packing for my cruise of the western Caribbean. There are plenty of “tropical” beers, so why not make a tropical drink with hops in it… is what i wish my thought process was in creating this drink instead of thinking: “What if there is a storm? or a hurricane? What should I pack for that? Man, I really could use a Hurricane right now.”

Hoptical Storm Anxiety
4 oz. hop-infused rum

3 oz. passion fruit juice

2 o.z lime juice
2 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. orange juice
1 tsp. grenadine
– Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice
– shake vigorously
– double strain into a hurricane glass filled with fresh ice
garnish: cherry & pineapple slice
Somehow, the hops aren’t over powered. It’s almost like a hint of “tropical” beer. It may not be as good as a Western Caribbean cruise, but its pretty close, right?
