Giuseppe González’s Jungle Bird

Giuseppe González, Starboard Tack and Mott 32 | Las Vegas

The winning drink in our recent Jungle Bird tasting, is appropriately by the bartender who helped popularize it: Giuseppe González, who is now based at Starboard Tack and Mott 32 in Las Vegas. His mix was the full-bodied, bitter-boozy-juicy package the judges recognized instantly as a Jungle Bird.
