Yellow Bird Cocktail

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.

Check out Modern Tiki's Yellow Bird recipe for a great variation.


  • 45mL White Rum (1.5 oz)
  • 15mL Galliano Liqueur (0.5 oz)
  • 15mL Triple Sec (0.5 oz)
  • 15mL Fresh Lime Juice (0.5 oz)


  1. Combine all ingredients into your cocktail shaker
  2. Shake with ice
  3. Strain into a chilled, stemmed cocktail glass
  4. Garnish with skewered orange and maraschino cherry
