The Hurricane is a classic cocktail yet laden with calories. Lower the impact of calories with a few tweaks to the original Bacardi Hurricane drink recipe. The cocktail remains easy to create and flavorful while you eye that figure friendly bikini without regret.
Bacardi Hurricane Teenied – adapted by Cheri Loughlin
1/2 ounce Bacardi Superior
1-1/2 ounce Tropicana Trop50 Orange Juice
1-1/2 ounce Light Cranberry Juice
Orange Twist Garnish
Build in a Hurricane glass over fresh ice. Garnish with orange twist. Approximate total calories: 119
Bacardi Select Rum gives the Hurricane rich character beyond the usual. Using Tropicana Trop50, light version of cranberry juice and cutting out both grenadine and fresh cut fruit garnishes takes out a huge amount of calories that would otherwise add little to the drink besides sugar. The flavor is still all intact. Think wiser when building a cocktail for lower calorie inclusion and the taste will remain while your girlish figure stays intact.
