Cocktail Recipe | Bird of Paradise | The Plain Truth About the Best Seeds Cocktail Collection

Follow Redbird Bar Director Tobin Shea’s cocktail recipe below to make the Bird of Paradise from The Plain Truth About the Best Seeds Cocktail Collection. The Bird of Paradise is a classic tiki cocktail with bright, fruity notes, with cream and citrus but not overly sweet.

Bird of Paradise
1.5 oz Beefeater Gin
1/2 oz St George Raspberry Liqueur
3/4 oz Fresh Pressed Lime Juice
3/4 oz Raspberry Syrup
1/2 oz Cream
1/2 oz Egg White
3 Drops Orange Blossom Water

In a Boston Shaker, combine all ingredients. Add a pinch of crushed ice and shake until the sound of the ice disappears. Pour directly into a Collins glass and fill with crushed ice. Add a straw, and garnish with an orchid and a lime twist.
