Wicked Waldo’s Whiskeys 6: Hurricane (Tell him it is a Himicane, tell her it is a Hericane)

17 Oct

Himicane, Hericane or Hurricane

(An indiscriminate drink where everyone will need a cane)

1/2 oz of 151 proof Puerto Rican rum  (SEE WARNING BELOW)

1/2 oz of white coconut rum (brand name rhymes with “Carribou” and is where “2.5 Men” takes place)

1/2 oz of Jamaican mollases rum (brand name rhymes with “buyers” and could be spelled Miers but isn’t: god-almighty do I have to spell it out for you?)

Fill glass with equal parts of orange juice and pineapple juice.

Top with a small amount of Grenadine.

Add ice if that is your thing.

Garnish with a cherry.

 WARNING (thank you Wikipedia)

Bacardi 151 is flammable. However, Bacardi 151 has multiple warnings on the label of the bottle stating that it should not be ignited or exposed to an open flame.

As an extra precaution, Bacardi 151, as shipped by Bacardi, is equipped with a stainless steel flame arrester crimped onto to the neck of the bottle to prevent the rum from igniting, in case a consumer or bartender ignores the warnings and applies the rum to a source of ignition (e.g. a flaming pan or dish, a flambe). Nevertheless, despite the warnings against ignition and the flame arrester, incidents have been alleged where consumers claim to have been burned by bartenders who ignore the warnings and remove the flame arrestor using a tool strong enough to pry the stainless steel flame arrester from the bottle, and expose the bottle to an open flame.


One extra warning – – – from me. Try to limit yourself to one drink. I say “try” because judgement may be severly impared. Never drive after even one of these. Try this at home kids.

Or if you insist on having one at a bar or friends house then get a designated driver or – – – buy one of those “old lady” tricycles and peddle your ass around town.

    OMG, you brought back a memory best forgotten!

    I once went to a party where the host (recently returned from the caribbean ) served that exact rum: within half a drink my entire body turned beet RED, and I started sweating from every pore! Hand to God! I had to lay down and seriously contemplated going to the E.R., but then I fell asleep, or passed out. I’m not exactly sure what happened but when I awoke 4 hours later the redness was gone, replaced by EXTREME thirst!!!

    Never before (or since) have I had a reaction even remotely similar to ANY liquor!! Crazy night that was!

    to all who imbibe 151 rum….Handle with Caution!!!

      Dangerous stuff. Sounds like the “flame arrester” wasn’t working that night.
