One of my family’s favorite things to do to escape the harsh cold that thankfully never hits Southern California by heading to the tropics. Unfortunately, that trip isn’t always easy to make with the kids in school and my husband busy with work. That’s why when we were offered the chance to learn how to bring the tropics home with a classic tropical cocktail mixology class, we jumped at then opportunity. There is little better than unwinding with a glass of the Beaches Resort after a week of driving a carpool of children to school, working, cleaning, phone meetings and the everyday tasks that need to get done. One of my favorite drinks has become the yellow bird rum cocktail and it’s even better now since I know how to make it with my husband and friends.
A yellow bird rum cocktail is tropical paradise in a glass that will take you away to the best beach vacation you have taken!Ingredients for the Beaches Resorts Yellow Bird Rum Cocktail:
1 oz Appleton Special
1/2 oz Creme de Banana
5 oz Orange Juice
Dash of Simple Syrup
Garnish: Pineapple Slice
Once you’ve gathered up all the necessary ingredients, throw them into a cocktail shaker.
Simply shake (for best results turn on some good music and shake to the beat) and then pour over ice. Take the pineapple slice and make a slit up the middle and slide it onto the rim of your glass. That’s it, it’s time to enjoy and get ready to make the second round.
The yellow bird rum cocktail is one of many different rum cocktails you can enjoy. Each one will take you to a different one of the Beaches Resorts (in spirit and taste of course). All you need to do is decide on which one you want to visit. We’ve all heard of Christmas in July, but maybe it’s time to start a new party, Summer paradise in December. This cocktail and the Another Day in Paradise cocktail are great ways to get that trend started.
