Can you give me a good recipe for Asian pear martini?

Jungle bird for me tonight
Muddle pineapple
1oz pineapple
.5oz Campari
1.5 oz gosling old reserve dark rum
.5oz Malibu
.25oz lime

Campari is an interesting ingredient

It's a great drink TT. Problem is black strap rum is not easy to find. I mine this way:

1.5 oz Cruzan Black Strap rum
1.5 oz Pineapple juice
0.75 oz Campari
0.5 oz Lime juice
0.5 oz Simple syrup

Shake and strain into iced filled glass.

if you do have black strap rum, you can up the campari

if you just have aged dark rum like i do, I really recommend lowering the campari to .5 instead of .75.

The traditional recipe does have simple syrup, but i typically have my cocktails more boozy so i left it out and replaced it with the boozier malibu.

but it is quite an excellent cocktail.
