Clarified Jungle Bird

Clarified Jungle Bird

October 07, 2021

The Jungle Bird is a truly perfect cocktail. It’s one of our all time favorites. We found this cool little idea for clarifying a Jungle Bird through the Cocktail Chemist who has and does a bunch of cool things with cocktails. We played with his recipe and found it to be fantastic, delicious, and worth sharing with all you good peoples. And be sure to check out his website if you like playing with alcohol. 

Be sure to start this a day or two ahead of when you want to consume it as there’s a little prep work involved. And honestly if you’re going to take the time to make this, and you love the Jungle Bird as much as we do, then you’re probably going to want to double this recipe. We regret not doing that the first time around, but alas, you live and you learn. 


Clarified Jungle Bird

Ready in ½-24 hours

Serves 3 drinks



  1. Put all ingredients except the milk into a bowl or pitcher.
  2. Pour milk into a different bowl.
  3. Slowly pour the cocktail ingredients into the milk. This will start to curdle right away, this is good and what you need to help the clarification process.
  4. Cover that bowl with cling wrap and let sit for at least a half hour, we let ours hang out for three hours or so.
  5. Get the container you’ll be storing the finished drink in, this will need to hold 20 oz of liquid.
  6. Place a reusable coffee filter with a disposable coffee filter inside of that, over the container.
  7. Pour the cocktail into that and let it slowly drip through. The straining process can take three hours so be patient and plan accordingly.
  8. Once that's done you can pour the beautifully clarified bevvy over a nice cube of ice and enjoy!
  9. The clarified jungle bird will store in the fridge for a month.
