The rosy-red Jungle Bird is a classic tiki drink not usually served as a sparkler. This revised version splits the rum component between light and dark rums (usually, it’s all Jamaican or blackstrap rum). It has a lighter, less sweet flavor profile compared to the original.

  • 1 ounce Gosling's Black Seal Rum
  • 1 ounce Brugal Especial Extra Dry Rum
  • ½ ounce pineapple juice
  • ¾ ounce lime juice
  • ½ ounce Campari
  • 3 ounces Prosecco 
  • Dried pineapple ring (for garnish)

In cocktail shaker, combine first five ingredients with ice. Shake well, and strain into Collins glass over fresh ice. Top with Prosecco. Garnish with dried pineapple ring. Serve with straw.
