The Black Heron on the West Side of Grand Rapids makes The Jungle Bird with a tincture of the sunset shone warm about the verdant lime wedge. 

In this cocktail, the Campari and pineapple burst onto one’s palate like a phantom grapefruit lemonade inception. This Bird alights upon the tongue.

 

How to make it:

1 ½ oz. aged rum 

1 ½ oz. fresh lime juice 

1 ½ oz. simple syrup 

½ oz. Campari 

1 oz. pineapple juice

 

Shake that mother. Serve with a lime zest and garnish with the wedge. 

I believe it was Henrik Ibsen who wrote, “A forest bird never wants a cage. And I never want to see the bottom of this glass, y’got me?”

But then again, I have been drinking.
