This past weekend seemed to be the weekend of the Jungle Bird. At least it seemed that way on Instagram. Jungle Birds and riffs on it kept popping up in my feed. Many made with Santeria rum! Lacking that rum but wanting to be a joiner (as I sometimes do) I decided to make a cool and refreshing libation to celebrate the long weekend and the nice weather.
Flight Of Fancy
1.5 oz Myers’s Rum
0.75 oz Poli Airone Rosso Aperitivo*
0.5 oz lime juice
0.5 oz falernum
1.5 oz pineapple juice
Prepare as one would a Jungle Bird (or a PW&L; I'm not picky).
*One could of course substitute Aperol.
