Tiki and Tropical Drinks: Appleton Bird Cocktail using Appleton Jamaican Rum.

Tiki and Tropical Drink Recipes: Learn how to make the Appleton Bird cocktail a new Jamaican mixed drink. Here is a new one for your logbooks, a great Appleton rum recipe right from Appleton Estate themselves that we thought we would share with you all. Appleton is a premier rum distiller famous in Jamaica for their fine rums. The Tia Maria, a coffee liqueur, also has origins in Jamaica and tastes of Jamaican coffee beans and vanilla. 

The Appleton rum gives the drink it's depth and the Tia Maria gives it it's complexity with notes of coffee and vanilla and a creamy texture. The creme de banana blends great and gives the drink a nice tropical vibe.  The orange juice helps to round everything out. A really nice tropical drink from Jamaica that would be a great additional to your tiki bar.

We have had a bunch of nice reviews for this tropical / tiki cocktail in the last few weeks.
