Given that the hotel’s bar was named Aviary and that patrons could view birds kept in a netted area next to the swimming pool through a glass panel in the bar, the name Jungle Bird was fitting. The hotel became the Crowne Plaza Mutiara before being demolished in 2013 to make way for development, and the birds were eventually set free by the hotel’s Colombian general manager, Ricardo Tapia. The cocktail was first served in a ceramic bird vessel that could be sipped through an opening in the tail. Later, maybe as a result of the original vessel being stolen, it was served in a stemmed wine goblet with an engraved bird on the side. The inclusion of the Jungle Bird in Jeff “Beachbum” Berry’s seminal 2003 book Intoxica greatly contributed to its rediscovery and subsequent rise in popularity! In fact, Malaysians now consider it to be somewhat of a national cocktail. On February 26, 2019, Jeffrey Ong, 71, passed away. According to the country’s newspaper, he was “the creator of Malaysia’s only internationally recognized classic cocktail.” “.

Delicious! We used anejo rum with no ill effects.

Perfect if Campari was reduced to 1/4 ounce per drink.

This is one of the great modern cocktails. Fresh pineapple juice is essential, and the KitchenAid attachment works wonderfully for this. “Rum” is a broad category, and blackstrap differs greatly from other types of rum. Cruzan makes a nice one. I like my bird as a dirty pour, unstrained. Complex, witty, the best of tiki.

Used every ingredient as instructed including the strapped rum. There is undoubtedly a darker, moodier vibe to the strapped rum and bitters than I had anticipated. Don’t be fooled by the pineapple into thinking this is a refreshing beach beverage. Still liked it! Just different than expected so FYI.

Delicious. We used fresh pineapple juice, which took only five more minutes to prepare in the blender. We omitted the rum since we wanted a second round that was less spicy. Also delightful, just less complex.

Very well-balanced; occasionally, I feel like a Jungle Bird leans too much on the Campari. This is delicious! If you have Demerara syrup on hand, it makes a great replacement for the basic

Double the amount of lime! It’s goes a long way!

Really delicious balance of bitter, sweet, punchy. It has a strong flavor, so I believe some soda water would help it to become a little more mild.

Fresh pineapple juice is key. The canned version was way too acidic. Since I had plantation pineapple rum on hand, I used it. Delicious!.

Good to top off with seltzer in a mule cup

Oh my god, this is magnificent. Although I don’t like sweet or sour drinks, I tried this recipe and it turned out really well. The lime is just right, and the Campari cuts through the sweetness. Beautiful to boot, a lovely soft creamy froth on top. Can’t wait to serve this to someone. post-coronavirus.

This is so good. Since I don’t like overly sweet drinks, I omitted the simple syrup. Will make often this summer. Definitely a hit at this house! Also used Kraken 94 proof black spiced rum.

Delicious! We used anejo rum with no ill effects. Private notes are only visible to you.
