Salty Bird

Salty Bird tropical cocktail with light rum, Campari, pineapple juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and salt

The Salty Bird is the creation of Lauren Schell at The Everleigh in Melbourne, and we love it for its salty-sweet, pineapple-grapefruit flavors. As the name would imply, the Salty Bird is a cross between a Salty Dog and a Jungle Bird, and it’s a perfectly entry point for someone who finds Campari too bitter in a drink like the Negroni, or even in the original Jungle Bird.

If you really can’t stand Campari’s bitterness, Aperol or another bitter citrus apéritif is fine – but you might want to skimp a bit on the simple syrup.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled tall glass. Garnish with a spring of mint and a slice of pineapple or a lime wheel.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
