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
Combine ingredients in a mixing tin.
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.
