hurricane proof

1 oz Bols Genever
3/4 oz Dark Rum (Plantation Original Dark)
1/4 oz Galliano
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Purée (3/4 oz Passion Fruit Syrup)
3/4 oz Simple Syrup (Combined with above)

Shake with ice and strain over crushed ice.

While searching for Galliano-containing Tiki drinks in crafting the Wavecrasher, I stumbled upon an article in Maxim of riffs on classic New Orleans cocktails. Perhaps the article was sponsored by the Bols company for there were many Bols Genever and Galliano recipes inside. Luckily, I am a fan of both, and I was drawn in by the Hurricane variation crafted by Brad Smith of Latitude 29 called Hurricane Proof. Actually, the recipe seemed closer to the Hurricane Buster given the split base spirit and the liqueur aspects.
Hurricane Proof met the nose with a malt, lime, and passion fruit bouquet. Next, caramel, lime, and passion fruit on the sip led into malty Genever, rum, passion fruit, vanilla, anise, and the Genever's wormwood note on the swallow.
