Try the Extremely Underrated Jungle Bird Tiki Cocktail

An intriguing combination of pineapple juice, Campari, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, and dark rum (use so-called “black strap” for added depth), the Jungle Bird is one of the more underappreciated cocktails out there. It’s been called a “tropical Negroni” and that’s not a bad description of its bittersweet complexity. Perfect for a beach day with a mix of sun and clouds.
