Ezra Star’s Jungle Bird

Ezra Star, Drink | Boston

Tapping into the inherent escapism of tiki, Ezra Star opts for the Jungle Bird as her “desert island” drink. With careful consideration, she specifies that the mug should have a face on it, “so that I would always have someone to talk to.” On a desert island, limes would help fight off scurvy, while crushed ice would help one keep cool. For the garnish? A pineapple frond, “because even on a desert island, a little hospitality goes a long way.”

  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 3/4 ounce Campari
