In New Orleans, one drink reigns supreme: the Hurricane. You'll see that bright pink rum punch in the hands of every other reveler along Bourbon Street. So when Da Levee, our own little slice of New Orleans in Columbus, outfitted their Short North space with a new bar, they needed an equivalent signature cocktail.

So when Da Levee, our own little slice of New Orleans in Columbus, outfitted their Short North space with a new bar, they needed an equivalent signature cocktail.

They've named their rum drink after a similar meteorological beast-the derecho, that straight-line windstorm that knocked out power in Ohio for days in the summer of 2012. With a double dose of light and dark rums, Da Levee's Derecho is a doozy. But fresh-squeezed citrus juice, house-made grenadine and a splash of red pop help it go down easy. Order a glass for $5 or split a carafe for $12.
