The Hurricane Wave Frozen cocktail is a tropical delight that was born on the sunny beaches of Miami. It's a favorite among those who enjoy a refreshing, fruity cocktail with a kick. The vibrant blue color is reminiscent of the ocean waves, hence the name 'Hurricane Wave'.

  • It's a popular choice for beach parties and summer gatherings.

  • The cocktail's bright color and fruity flavor make it a hit among the younger crowd.

  • It's also a great choice for those who enjoy sweet, tropical flavors.

How Hurricane Wave Frozen Tastes?

The Hurricane Wave Frozen cocktail is a delightful blend of sweet, sour, and fruity flavors. The sweetness of the pineapple juice is balanced by the tartness of the lime, while the coconut rum adds a tropical twist. The blue curaçao gives it a unique, slightly bitter taste that cuts through the sweetness, making it a well-rounded and refreshing cocktail.

Interesting facts about Hurricane Wave Frozen

  • The Hurricane Wave Frozen cocktail gets its vibrant blue color from blue curaçao, a liqueur made from the dried peels of the Laraha citrus fruit.
  • Despite its tropical origins, the cocktail can be enjoyed year-round, especially during the hot summer months.
  • The cocktail is typically served in a hurricane glass, which is named after the shape of a hurricane lamp.


Pineapple Juice

It's all about the balance: tropical sweetness meets tartness. 4 oz is just enough to give that vacation in a glass vibe without overwhelming your tastebuds. Leave it out, and you lose the cocktail's heart! Swap it with mango juice for a different tropical twist, but you'll miss that classic pineapple punch.

Lime Juice

1 oz adds a citrusy zing, lifting the flavors and cutting through the sweetness. Too much and you'll pucker up more than a first kiss; too little and the drink becomes one-note. No lime juice? Try lemon, but expect a sharper, less tropical tang.

Coconut Rum

2 oz brings the beachy, nutty notes that make you want to sway like a palm tree. Skip this, and you ditch the cocktail's soul. If you're out of coconut rum, use regular white rum and a splash of coconut extract—same vibes, different route.

Blue Curaçao

1 oz for that mesmerizing ocean blue and a hint of orange flavor. Lose this, and you're missing the wave in the Hurricane Wave Frozen. No blue curaçao? Orange liqueur can step in; the taste will be there, but you'll lose the blue hue—more like a sunset, less like a wave.

Crushed Ice

1 cup chills and dilutes, turning liquor into a slushy escape. Without enough ice, your cocktail won't freeze properly, and you'll just have a cold drink. No blender? You'll need a really good arm workout shaking it with ice then straining it out—call it a gym substitute.

Pineapple Slice and Maraschino Cherry

These garnishes aren't just eye candy; they hint at the flavors within. Skip them, and you'll miss the tropical tease. No pineapple slice or cherry? Use an orange slice or a strawberry for a pop of color and a subtle twist on taste.
