This is a hurricane glass from Pat O'Brien's in New Orleans, LA. It is a clear glass with green lettering and designs inspired by the wrought iron on display in the French Quarter. The glass is pictured in Beachbum Berry's Remixed, with information on its history, on pages 56-57. At the end of prohibition in 1933, Pat O'Brien converted his speakeasy to a legitimate drinking establishment in the 600 block of St. Peter Street. In the mid 1940's, Pat O'Brien's Bar propelled when the Hurricane Drink was created. At that time, there was short supply of liquor such as whiskey, bourbon and scotch. There was, however, access to rum coming up the river. Bar owners were forced to buy large quantities of rum, 50 cases or so, in order to purchase other liquor. Through trial and error, they came up with a drink that everyone loved! Pat O'Brien paired it up with a glass shaped like a Hurricane lamp and the drink was perfected!
