Potted Parrot

Potted Parrot tropical cocktail by Trader Vic, with light rum, triple sec, orange juice, lemon juice, orgeat, and simple syrup

The Potted Parrot is a classic recipe from Trader Vic, the grandfather of the 20th-century tiki craze. It’s a simple, entry-level tiki cocktail with bright citrus and sweet almond flavors, and barely a hint of rum despite the full-sized pour.

If you don’t have light rum on hand, aged rum will do – even better if it’s lightly-aged and not too characterful. Brown sugar syrup or oleo saccharum make fine substitutes for the simple syrup, if need be.
