The Jungle Bird is a relatively recent Tiki concoction, credited to the Aviary Bar at the Kuala Lumpur Hilton hotel in 1978. It was first published in John J. Poister's New American Bartender's Guide in 1989, but languished in obscurity until it was unearthed and published in Jeff 'Beachbum' Berry's Intoxica in 2002. Since then, it has become very popular, particularly among the bitter-loving cocktail crowd, with notable bartenders putting their own personal stamp on it.
