From its origins at the Kuala Lumpur hotel in the 1970’s, the Jungle Bird is the fusion of a tropical drink with the edge of a Negroni from a good dose of Campari. A perfect lowball for the sunny days ahead.
The Jungle Bird
In a shaker glass filled with ice add:
- 1 1/2 Ounces Dark or Black Strap Rum (we like Cruzan Black Strap)
- 3/4 Ounce Campari
- 1 1/2 Ounces Pineapple Juice
- 1/2 Ounce Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
- 1/2 Ounce Simple Syrup
Shake until Painfully Cold. Strain into a large rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a pineapple wedge.
