Two Wednesdays ago, my travels ended me up at Brick & Mortar where I had the chance to peruse their new menu. For a drink, I asked bartender Rob Hoover for the Jungle Stirred. Rob explained that it was bartender Matty Durgin's recipe that was a straight spirits riff on the Jungle Bird. Here, the pineapple and lime juice elements were swapped to pineapple rum and lime oil, and a spice element was added through falernum and bitters to make for a proper cocktail.
