History of The Jungle Bird Cocktail

The Jungle Bird cocktail is a unique concoction that combines rum, fruit juices, and Campari, resulting in a refreshing tropical drink. It originated in the late 1970s at the Aviary Bar within the Kuala Lumpur Hilton bird jungle, as the cocktail was created by a bartender named Jeffrey Ong. Despite its Malaysian roots, the Jungle Bird gained popularity internationally and has become a staple on many cocktail menus worldwide. It’s known for its balance of flavors and its distinctive deep red hue, thanks to the Campari.
