After Puritan & Company, I continued my way home but stopped into Backbar to congratulate Joe Cammarata for winning the Tales of the Cocktail Hurricane Competition. After Joe named all of the drinks of the day and week, I shook my head and replied that I was here to try his winning drink! Just like Sahil Mehta's Category 1 entry, Joe utilized the excellent flavor pairing of passion fruit and Campari. Google told me that there was a Hurricane Cesar in 1996 but no Hurricane Caesar though; Joe explained that he created this recipe on the Ides of March's drink of the day at Backbar.
