Is there anything better than a tropical drink to brighten up a wintry day? I certainly don’t think so.

In the middle of winter, nothing cheers me up quite like a pretty Tiki drink made with pineapple, citrus, and dark rum. It reminds me of beaches and warm summer vacations. This is where a bright and fizzy Ginger Jungle Bird fits right in.

Ginger Jungle Bird

Like the traditional Jungle Bird, this cocktail gets its vibrant hue from a dose of crimson red Campari mixed with sweet yellow pineapple juice. The addition of the bitter amaro creates a well-balanced flavor profile that isn’t too sweet, allowing the cocktail to have broad appeal among your guests. For a festive twist, this Ginger Jungle Bird is topped with a bit of high quality ginger beer, giving it a bit of spice and bubbly fizz that’s perfect for this time of year.

Be an adventurous host and celebrate the holidays with something a little different this winter!
