So unless you've been living under a rock, everything should know that a pretty hefty hurricane is moving toward the East Coast as we speak. What a week it's been, with an East Coast earthquake (pretty scary!) and now a major hurricane! Speaking as someone who currently resides on an island (Long Island), I can't say I'm too thrilled about the impending storm. As far as I heard, Long Island is not going to be evacuated, so my housemates and I have nothing to do but ride out the storm. So what to do when you are stuck inside? Make the most of it! 
The Hurricane
(makes 10-12 servings)
- 12oz light rum
- 12oz dark rum
- 10oz grenadine
- 10oz orange juice
- 10oz lime juice
- 3 tablespoons superfine sugar
- 1 large orange (for garnish)
* Serve on the rocks*

** But seriously, everyone stay safe in this storm. I know parts of the East Coast are being evacuated as a precaution... make sure you listen to what the authorities suggest, stock up on food, water and flashlights, make sure you (and your pets) stay inside, etc! STAY SAFE! **
