1 1⁄2 oz Gin, Uncle Val's Botanical
3⁄4 oz Suze
1 1⁄2 oz Pineapple juice
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Orgeat
Instructions

Shake all ingredients vigorously over ice to build a nice aeration in the pineapple and lime juices. Pour over a single clear ice cube in a double old fashioned glass. Garnish with a cherry and pineapple fronds.

Notes

A bittersweet, refreshing original tiki variation.

History

I love the Jungle Bird more than almost any other cocktail. I stumbled upon the Bermuda Hundred (named after an area along the Virginia coast). The Jungle bird uses Rum and Campari, where the Bermuda uses Gin and Campari. I used Gin and Suze.

I did try the "fourth corner" of this variation trail using Rum and Suze, and deemed it to be the least interesting of the four possible drinks.
