The Gauguins Breakfast Cocktail (by Cindy Renzi, Vice presidente of French Culinary Institute, New York City, USA) was found on The King of Cocktails site. Great name has strange post-impressionist cue. Breakfast sounds like somewhat from Edouard Manet, not Gauguin… But passion fruit in compositions corresponds to polynesian period of Gauguin :)
30 ml white rum
30 ml dark rum
15 ml passion fruit surup
15 ml apricot liqueur
60 ml pineapple juice
60 ml cranberry juice
Shake all ingredients with ice, strain in to hurricane glass and garnish with fresh fruit.
