The Yellow Bird Cocktail is one of the classic IBA cocktails, but its recipe varies quite a bit from source to source. The ingredients most often found are those of this recipe: rum, lemon, Galliano liqueur, without forgetting the orange juice which gives it a yellow color without which the cocktail would bear its name badly. Moreover, it is not uncommon to find pineapple juice, orange liqueur or banana cream in yellow birds.
