Cold Bird: A Coffee Jungle Bird

Hudson Hill Cold Bird

The tropical favorite with chocolate and vanilla notes.

The Jungle Bird is a favorite tropical cocktail, and Hudson Hill drink maker and director of operations Alex Lerman wanted to double down on its bitter elements by adding cold-brew coffee. “We get the bitter we love, and represent our roots as a coffee shop at the same time,” he says.
