The New Orleans Pelicans have the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft Thursday night, which means Duke’s Zion Williamson will soon be the toast of Bourbon Street. But you don’t have to be in the French Quarter to toast the move yourself. Just invite a couple of friends over and mix up a batch of Hurricanes! We found a great recipe for them from www.gritsandpinecones.com (and as a Southerner born and raised, what’s not to love about that web domain?!) Cheers, New Orleans, in more ways than one!
