The Jungle Cat is made with Tom Cat Gin, an almost whiskey-like gin that gets aged for six months in new American white oak barrels. This is a play on the classic Jungle Bird cocktail from The Aviary Bar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, made in 1978.

  • 1 1/2 Ounce Tom Cat Gin
  • 3/4 Ounces Campari
  • 1 1/2 Ounce fresh pineapple juice
  • 1/2 Ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 Ounce VT Grade A dark, robust maple syrup

Directions

Add ice, shake and strain over crushed ice in a tiki mug.

Go crazy with the garnish. 

A Campari-soaked pineapple works well, and using cherries or pineapple leaves is also fun.
