About this Cocktail

I recalled my Mount Pelee that was inspired by John Gertsen's Rhum Agricot and Martin Cate's Abricot Vieux and wondered how I could riff on it. Originally, my mind went to Campari that worked well with apricot before, but then I recalled the apricot-Strega duo that succeeded in another drink (see my post on the CocktailVirgin blog for details). I kept the Fino sherry instead of dry vermouth idea from the Campari drink that I had sketched out, and I complemented the Strega with aromatic bitters. I named this after an 1887 painting by Paul Gauguin that he did on the island of Martinique.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 oz Rhum Agricole Blanc (although aged would work)
  • 3/4 oz Fino (or Manzanilla) Sherry
  • 1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur
  • 1/4 oz Strega
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
Preparation:

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
