Malaysia seems like a pretty mellow place. Although we’ve never been to this Southeast Asian gem, it ranks well on the Happy Planet Index. In fact, Malaysia is the 46th happiest place to live on earth. By contrast, the USA is the 108th happiest country.

Whether or not you believe the HPI’s stats, you have to admit Malaysia has a pretty awesome national cocktail: the Jungle Bird! First invented in the 1970s, this Tiki cocktail has a little something for everyone’s tastes. If you love sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy all wrapped up into one drink, then you’ve got to give a Jungle Bird a try.

Although this Malaysian drink is mellow on its own, a touch of our citrus-flavored CBD oil could make your Jungle Bird “soar.” Be sure to try our CBD Jungle Bird rendition when you need an imaginary retreat to Southeast Asia.

Chilling In Kuala Lumpur

Unquestionably, Campari is the weirdest ingredient in the Jungle Bird—but it’s also what sets this drink apart from other Tiki cocktails. Just a touch of Campari’s ultra-bitter notes adds a remarkable complexity to this fantastic cocktail.

Even if you hate this Italian liqueur on its own, we urge you to give the Jungle Bird a shot. All of the other flavors in this tropical drink help smooth Campari’s bitter edge. It’s not unheard of for this Tiki drink to turn Campari haters into lovers.

If you aren’t already aware, Campari is an Italian aperitif that people traditionally take before a meal. You could learn more about using Campari in many of Tribe CBD’s cocktail recipes, especially the CBD Negroni and the CBD Americano.

Chilling In Kuala Lumpur – The CBD Jungle Bird

CBD Jungle Bird Recipe


  • 1 ½ oz Dark Jamaican Rum
  • ¾ oz Campari
  • 2 oz Pineapple Juice
  • ½ oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • ½ oz Simple Syrup
  • ½ dropperful Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Luxardo cherry (optional)


  • Pour rum, Campari, pineapple juice, lime juice, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker
  • Add ice and shake for a few seconds
  • Pour into a rocks glass with one large ice cube or a pre-chilled martini glass
  • Squirt one-half dropperful of Tribe CBD oil
  • Garnish with a pineapple chunk and a cherry

If you want to get extra fancy, consider making a “bird garnish” on this cocktail. No, we don’t mean using a real bird as a garnish—we’re not barbarians! We’re talking about using a pineapple wedge, leaves, a cherry, and a skewer to mimic a bird.

First, cut a triangle-shaped pineapple wedge and spread a few pineapple leaves on top. Next, use your skewer to spear a Luxardo cherry through the leaves and wedge to mimic the head of a bird.

What Does Tribe’s CBD Oil Taste Like?

For those who are curious, Tribe CBD only uses cold-pressed orange oil to flavor our citrus CBD oil. However, we also offer a natural-flavored CBD oil for those who don’t care for orange flavors. Whether you choose the natural or citrus-flavored oil, you will experience the benefits of our broad-spectrum CBD extract, hempseed oil, and coconut-extracted MCT oil.
