"Here we highlight the various flavors that can go into a classic Hurricane. By simply observing the differences in the ingredients' densities, we find that—we a bit of care and patience—they can be layered." — 2019 JBF Book Award nominees Grant Achatz, Nick Kokonas, Micah Melton, Allen Hemberger, and Sarah Hemberger
