- TEQUILA JUNGLE BIRD 1.5 oz Tequila 3/4 oz Amaro/Aperitif 1.5 oz Pineapple Juice🍍 1/2 oz Lime Juice I really enjoy different bitter spirits and cocktails, especially when they are tropical. This @ritualzeroproof Aperitif alternative is great, it’s got all the bitter vibes and had a great flavor. There’s a lot of emphasis on being sober, and that’s great, but we should also talk about moderation. There’s legit NA cocktails out there like this jungle bird for when ya wanna take a break from the booze.♬ original sound - Thirsty Whale
