The cocktail features global ingredients; Spanish Amontillado sherry, Italian Prosecco, French Kummel, and Australian Mr. Black. From my affinity for birds & birdwatching, and the variety of yellow birds in the above countries, the drink is named for “a yellow bird” and not any yellow bird in particular. The earthy caraway in the kummel meshes with nutty, light orange notes in the sherry, and fresh coffee notes from Mr. Black. Pineapple and Prosecco bring lively freshness and balance. Cheers!
