    hpnotiq_hurricane-400x500Certainly not a traditional exotic cocktail, but this drink does have the makings of new favorite. It’s blue, it has rum, it has a pineapple garnish…what more could you want?

    3 oz. HPNOTIQ
    1-2 oz. Citrus Flavored Rum
    Splash of Fresh Lime Juice
    Splash of Club Soda and garnish with a pineapple

    Pour the HYPNNOTIQ over ice in a stemmed rocks glass are highball glass. Gently add the rum and stir. Splash in the lime juice and club soda. Rim with raw sugar if you’d like, and garnish with a nice slab of pineapple.

    This simple recipe not only looks good, but it also shares most of its name with one of our favorite Martin Denny tunes, Hypnotique. Play the tune while you’re mixing the drink, and it will taste even better.

    Here’s Martin Denny…
