Yellow Bird

The Yellow Bird is a slightly cloudy yellow cocktail with a complex flavor. It’s a little bit orange, a little bit lime, and a little bit vanilla-anise-oak.

Yellow Bird drink with lime

This is a drink to be sipped and savored. If you want to pair it with a meal, it works like a dry white wine – ideal for fish, seafood and chicken meals.


  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1/2 ounce cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce Galliano
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the ingredients. Shake until chilled, and strain the mixture into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
