Hurricane

Hurricanes are a favorite cocktail in the Caribbean, and the drink is often associated with the people who live there. The hurricane cocktail history has been traced to Cuba in 1930. When president Franklin D. Roosevelt went on a trip to Cuba during Prohibition, he was served this drink by then Cuban President Batista. The president loved it so much that he shared it with his friends back in the United States and they started making their own versions of it at home. Since then, many people have continued making their own versions of this popular drink, and every one has a different recipe for the ingredients required to make it properly.
