Who doesn’t love a tiki drink during the summer months? The Jungle Bird was a cocktail that almost became obsolete until Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, gave it new life his book, Beachbum Berry Remixed. According to Berry, the one ingredient that fascinated him and other bartenders: Campari. Pair that with the second main ingredient, pineapple, and you have natural sweetness balanced with a bitter and spicy touch.
- 2 oz Dark Rum
- ¾ oz Campari
- ¾ oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
- ½ oz Simple Syrup
- 2 oz Pineapple Juice
- Garnish: Mint Leaves
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake very vigorously for 20–30 seconds or until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, using crushed ice. Gather a large bunch of mint sprigs, and slap against hand to release oils. Garnish the drink with upright mint.
