Mardi Gras Hurricane Mocktail

I have never been a huge fan of the whole Mardi Gras food culture. I think it is because I don’t eat shrimp or any shellfish really for that mater. But who can resist a well crafted Hurricane Cocktail? I love how pretty it is and how it is sweet without it being cloying. I gave up drinking about 5 months ago to help heal some gut issues I was having. Therefore, I decided to make this Mardi Gras Hurricane Mocktail so that I can still indulge in the fun festivities but as a sober person. That being said, you can easily omit the run extract from this recipe and add your own rum. This Mardi Gras Hurricane Mocktail is made with delicious juices, rum extract and a nutty almond extract. It is so delicious and refreshing.

The recipe for this Mocktail is linked below. It is also printable. After you read through the recipe card, there are some paragraphs following that offer explanations for any questions you may have.

A fun and alcohol free way to celebrate Fat Tuesday. You can also add rum to this drink if you want to spice things up.


  • 1/4 cup of Fruit Punch
  • 1/4 cup of Tropicana Caribbean Sunset Juice
  • 1/4 cup Orange Juice + a splash to top the drinks
  • 1 T of Maraschino Cherry Juice
  • 5 drops of Rum Extract (found in the baking aisle)
  • 2 teaspoons of almond extract
  • 2 slices of lemon + more for garnish
  • Maraschino Cherries For Garnish
  • 1/2 can sparkling lemon lime soda or seltzer
  • Ice


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a shaker with ice except for the seltzer and garnish.
  2. Shake well, pour the shaker contents split between two glasses with ice.
  3. Top each with a splash of orange juice, then the sparkling lemon lime, top with lemon slices and cherries.
I use a variety of juices from the Simply Brand and Tropicana.

Caribbean Sunset

Since giving up drinking I have really come to enjoy juices. This Caribbean Sunset Juice is one of my favorites and I easily find it every where. I got this one at Jewel which is Chicago’s version of an Albertson’s store. But I also know they have it at Walmart and lots of places. If you can’t find this juice, sub with a pineapple juice or papaya juie.

This is the rum extract I used, you can find this in the baking aisle.
