How To Make Jungle Bird Cocktail?
The jungle bird is a refreshing tropical rum drink with a few unique twists. It was founded in the early 1970s at Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur Hilton’s famous Aviary Bar. If you’re looking for a great-tasting rum cocktail that allows you to experiment with a fun garnish, this recipe is hard to beat!
Tropical cocktails usually include rum, pineapple, and lime, but Campari is not a popular ingredient. The bitter aperitif, which is usually reserved for dry dinner drinks like the Negroni, fits shockingly well in this combination. The fruits tend to even out the bitterness, while the dark rum and simple syrup add a hint of sugar that ties it together beautifully.
The garnish is the true star of the show here. A pineapple wedge, a few leaves, and a cherry would be used to make a “jungle pigeon” adornment for the bottle. It’s incredibly easy to bring together, and the result is spectacular. If you usually miss the garnish on your cocktails, make an exception with this one.
