concrete jungle bird

1/2 oz Los Vecinos Mezcal
1/2 oz Avua Prata Cachaça
1/2 oz Plantation Smoked Pineapple Rum
1/2 oz Italicus
1/2 oz Martini & Rossi Fiero Aperitivo
1 oz Pink Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Crude Tropi-500 Toasted Coconut-Pineapple-Allspice Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a bird glass, garnish with a mint sprig, and add a straw.
For Andrea's first pick off of Backbar's "Heatwave Menu," she selected the Concrete Jungle Bird that might have been a glimpse into the upcoming bird-themed menu or might have just gotten the bird glasses some inaugural usage before they are filled with a different recipe. Bartender Anthony Brocatto described this as a group effort where everyone added an ingredient or two to the mix. Here, the mint garnish dominated the aroma near the straw. Next, lime, fruity, and caramel notes on the sip cawed into bitter, vegetal, smoky, and bergamot flavors on the swallow.
