Its base of pineapple juice offers a juicy, tangy canvas which is complemented by the exotic, tart nuances of passion fruit liqueur, giving the cocktail a vibrant, sweet-sour flavor. The addition of coconut liqueur brings a creamy, tropical aroma that pairs beautifully with the fruitiness of the other components and evokes a sense of an exotic getaway. A delicate touch of gin adds a subtle botanical note to the mix, rounding out the cocktail with a hint of complexity. Typically served in a hurricane glass, the Madeleine cocktail is garnished with a maraschino cherry and a cocktail umbrella, emphasizing its fun, summery vibe.
