Hilton Head Distillery – Jungle Bird
The Jungle Bird was created in 1973 and served as a welcome drink at the Kuala Lumpur Hilton Hotel. The name of the cocktail referred to the birds kept in a netted area near the hotel’s swimming pool, which could be seen through a glass panel from the famous Aviary Bar. Who knew so many flavors together would be so delicious?

3/4 ounce Campari
2 ounces pineapple juice
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce Demerara simple syrup
 Place all ingredients into a shaker tin with ice.  Shake and strain into a bird or tiki cup and fill with ice.  Garnish with 2 pineapple leaves (mimicking tail feathers), an umbrella with fruit and a silly straw.
