Yellow Bird Cocktail Recipe

The original Yellow Bird cocktail recipe is somewhat elusive – there are numerous variations available but we’ve stuck with the simplest and what we believe to be as a solid base which most likely other variations have derived from.
Some Yellow Bird recipes call for a mix of both white and dark rum, the addition of orange and/or pineapple juice and/or other liqueurs including banana liqueur and apricot brandy.
