Tropical Fluff

Fanny Chu, Donna | Brooklyn

Bartender Fanny Chu’s low-proof mashup of a Jungle Bird and a Garibaldi calls on the bittersweet and topical in equal measure. “I wanted a low-ABV Jungle Bird variation with fresh fruit juices,” she says. “Reminds me of when I was in Hawaii.”

  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce grapefruit juice
