Hurricane Cocktail

The first time that cocktail scholar Jeff “Beachbum” Berry sat down and ordered a drink from Steven Yamada, Yamada didn’t recognize him. Berry said he enjoyed rum, so Yamada said, “Oh, I bet you’ve never had a classic Hurricane, the way it’s supposed to be.” The thing is that Berry had written books on tiki, was a fixture at Tales of the Cocktail and is widely considered the expert on rum drinks. Yamada, who actually owned all of Berry’s books, is now the head bartender at Latitude 29, the upscale tiki bar by Berry and his wife, Annene Kaye, located in the Bienville House Hotel in the French Quarter.
