Potted Parrot

Potted Parrot

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.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with crushed or pebble ice. Garnish with an orange or lemon wheel and a cherry.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
