The Hand Grenade cocktail is a potent and popular drink that originated in New Orleans. It is a signature drink of the famous Bourbon Street in the heart of the French Quarter. The drink is served in a tall plastic container shaped like a hand grenade and is known for its bright green color and strong fruity flavor. The recipe for the Hand Grenade cocktail is a closely guarded secret, but the drink is believed to contain a mixture of melon liqueur, grain alcohol, and various fruit juices.
