Tiki time, all the time. Last drink was a simple drink, this time its time for something a little more complex. Enter the Jungle Bird. Not sure how many more drink samples I can make before selecting the winning game beverage for the party. I’m starting to really like this Smugglers Cove book. Pick one up for yourself!

I’ll take suggestions on what to bring to the party…

  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 0.5 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 0.5 ounce Demerara syrup
  • 0.75 ounce Campari
  • 1.5 ounce dark rum

Fill a shaker with ice, add everything inside and give it a shake. Serve onto a Collins glass filled with ice.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Sweet start, pineapple forward, but seconds later the bitter flavor of the Campari sits on your palette.
  • It’s an interesting mix of flavors, I simultaneously like it and am unsure of it… So confusing.
  • If you are a Campari fan in the mood for a sweet tiki cocktail, you should sign up for the Jungle Bird.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 7/10
  • Strength: 3/10
  • Sweetness: 7/10
  • I take a sip… Enjoy the sweet pineapple goodness… Then the Campari comes along to challenge my taste buds… So I take another sip and goodness returns.
