The Gauguin reminds me of many of the artist's paintings. It's a pretty two-dimensional representation of indigenous (read tropical) beauty. The flavor, though, is very colorful and bold with passion fruit syrup. For this I used real passion fruit puree, which is hard to come by, and added a little simple syrup for sweetness. Passion fruit is pretty tart, which is why there are more of the syrup in drink recipes than the juice itself.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. passion fruit syrup
  • maraschino cherry
Combine all liquid ingredients in a blender with ice and blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass and garnish with cherry.
