Airmail

Airmail cocktail with rum, lime, honey syrup and sparkling wine

The Airmail, from the 1949 edition of Esquire magazine’s Handbook for Hosts, is essentially a Caribbeanized take on a French 75, with rum and honey syrup taking the place of gin and simple syrup.

Older recipes may call for Champagne in particular, but the Airmail really isn’t that fussy – any sparkling wine will do. We like ours with a barely-sweet Cava.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice, and strain into a tall ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a lime twist or wheel.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
