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.
