juice of half a lime
1 1/4 oz orange juice
1 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1/4 oz Galliano
maraschino cherry for garnish


Squeeze the lime juice into a cocktail shaker with ice.
Add all of the remaining ingredients.
Shake well.
Strain into a collins glass with crushed ice. 
Garnish with the cherry.

Bird Yellow

My Mom and Dad used to sing a little song about a yellow bird and now that song has a very special meaning for my Dad and I since Mom is no longer with us.

She is like the yellow bird singing to us. Cheers Mom!
