The Story Behind The Pineapple Jungle Bird

I only recently started experimenting with the Jungle Bird cocktail and it is so delicious and there are so many possibilities. This rendition came to me when I was making breakfast and the pineapple marmalade was quite sweet but still had a bitter tang to it. I made a lot of changes in this one also with substituting the spiced rum for cognac and bought down the bitterness a little by replacing the Campari with Aperol. The citrus does a great job with cutting through everything and balancing the cocktail to perfection.


  • 1.5 ounces cognac
  • ½ ounce Aperol
  • 1 tablespoon pineapple marmalade
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice


  1. Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Shake hard to combine and chill ingredients
  3. Fine strain into a coupe glass
  4. Garnish with pineapple crown and edible flowers
