Eff the Hurricane, I prefer this myself. Best thing is it's easier because it is hard to get ahold of passion fruit nectar or juice (required for an authentic hurricane).
So my favorite Mardi Gras drink, the Rainstorm:
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz coconut rum
1/2 oz melon liqueur
1 oz blue curacao
1 oz pineapple juice (or more to balance)
1 oz sour mix (or more to balance)
In a large glass, combine all ingredients EXCEPT the blue curacao. Shake shake shake! Top with the blue curacao, it will drizzle down into the rest of the drink.
