How To Make Derby Bird

Watching the birds; flit about while sitting at the Aviary Bar, Kuala Lumpur was a moment in time, never to be repeated. The Jungle Bird was the bar’s signature cocktail and the inspiration behind this drink. Woodford Reserve bourbon happily pairs with Campari and orange and lemon juices for a cocktail that recalls the tiki kitsch of the 1970s, with a fresh and modern vibe.
