Aperol Beyond the Spritz: Bird of Paradise

Mason jar cocktail with a pleasing pink liquid and a deep blue backdrop. Lemon slice to garnish. All on a wood table.

A terrific way to enjoy Aperol when you want to go beyond the spritz. Here we use an overproof rum, pineapple and lime juice, for an absolutely banger of a riff on that modern tiki classic, The Jungle Bird. 

You know what they say... better a bird in the hand than two in the bush!  We'll definitely drink to that.

Bird of Paradise


.25 oz simple syrup
1 oz Aperol
1 oz Smith and Cross Jamaican Rum
1 oz pineapple juice
.5 oz freshly-squeezed lime juice
pineapple frond or mint leaves to garnish


Add all ingredients (except garnish) to a shaker with ice.  Shake until very cold.  Strain into a chilled glass filled with ice. Use pineapple front or a mint leaf, gently slapped, to garnish.
