Is this in bad taste?

I was asked to bring over some liquors to mix drinks for a Labor Day BBQ. I have vodka, grenadine, rum, Triple Sec, etc. Ingredients for a Hurricane. BUT after everything that's gone down in New Orleans this week, I'm VERY reluctant to make this drink. (Does anyone else find it painfully ironic that the Hurricane was a popular drink in N.O.?)

Would it be in bad taste for me to make Hurricanes? As far as I'm concerend, the guests coming are people ranging from western states (Cali, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona). But what if these people have friends or family in trouble from the recent disaster? I don't want to upset or offend anyone, but at the same time, I don't want to hold back on drink possibilities (I know one lady really loves this drink who's going to be at the BBQ). So should I hold back or just serve this drink?
