Want a bright little slice of joy? 'Tis the season for a re-emergence of fun, so let’s have at her.
A Jungle Bird is a classic tiki drink, but I have added a slight variation because I wanted a foam with mine. Truly, I love a foam! It’s up to you if you add the egg white or aquafaba as it isn’t part of the traditional recipe, but I do think it’s fun! Also, traditionally one would use 1:1:1:1 of Campari, pineapple juice, lime, and syrup, but I wanted to introduce some passionfruit for an extra tropic twist. If you don’t have multiple juices, pick either pineapple or passionfruit!
2oz Dark Rum
3/4 oz Campari
3/4 oz pineapple juice
3/4 oz passionfruit juice
3/4 oz fresh lime
3/4 oz Demerara sugar syrup
1/2 oz egg white or aquafaba (optional )
Shake vigorously over ice and strain into a sassy glass. Traditionally it would be a tumbler, but I have these lovely Collins glasses that add a splash of colour!
Garnish ostentatiously, like a tropical bird’s plumage!
