The Jungle Bird Cocktail has risen in popularity in the recent years. It actually dates back to 1973 when it was created by Jeffrey Ong, beverage manager at the Kuala Lumpur Hilton Hotel bar who created it to celebrate the hotel’s opening. It was originally served in a bird-shaped vessel which complemented the avian theme of the hotel bar.
