OK, admit it. You drank a lot of Hurricanes and Dark and Stormys this past weekend while cooped up indoors while avoiding Hurricane Irene. Didn't we all? They aren't the only disaster-themed cocktails, however. Here are five others to stock up for should New York City encounter another weather-related incident.

The Earthquake Cocktail

Combine 1 ounce gin, 1 ounce whiskey, and 1 ounce absinthe in a shaker. Shake and serve up, with an optional sugar-cube garnish.

Mudslide

Fill a lowball glass with ice. Combine 1 ounce vodka, 1 ounce coffee liqueur, and 1 ounce Irish cream liqueur in a shaker filled with ice and shake well. Strain into the glass and serve.

Monsoon Cocktail

Combine 1 1/4 ounces light rum, 4 ounces sweet and sour mix, 1 ounce pineapple juice, and 1 ounce passion-fruit juice in an ice-filled highball glass. Float ¾ ounce dark rum on top and serve.

Flaming Volcano (to share)

Combine 1 ounce light rum, 1 ounce brandy, 4 ounces orange juice, 2 ounces lemon juice, and 2 ounces almond-flavored syrup in a blender along with 2 scoops of crushed ice. Pour into a volcano bowl (see picture). Fill the crater with 1 ounce high-proof (over 70 percent ABV) rum. Light the rum on fire, then serve. Optional garnishes include pineapple and orange slices and maraschino cherries.

Tsunami Cocktail

Fill a lowball glass with ice and stir together 1 ounce Captain Morgan Original spiced rum and ½ ounce Malibu coconut rum. Fill the glass with the pineapple juice. Float ½ ounce grenadine along with ½ ounce dark rum on top and serve.
