Cocktail Hour: The Airmail

While I was gallivanting around West London at the weekend, I found myself drinking cocktails in Trailer Happiness on Portobello Road. They're a cool bar (with one of the friendliest and most on the ball waitresses I've met in London - do ask for Alba if you're in there) and they're known for their rum cocktails.

When I spied the Airmail on the menu, I wasn't entirely sure that rum and champagne would make friends in the same glass. Still, it's a billion page menu and I was thirsty, so I ordered it in a rush. Luckily, it tasted wonderful. They've mixed honey into the drink, which works a treat. It turns the drink a lush, golden colour and takes the edge off the rum so it's very easy to drink. And I wanted to make my own.

You'll need:
  • 50ml dark rum
  • 10ml runny honey
  • 10ml lime juice
  • Champagne
Shake it!

Shake the rum, honey and lime in a cocktail shaker, pour into a champagne flute and then top up with your bubbles. Drink seven, get plasticine all over the table in the bar and sing happy birthday very, very loudly. Probably.

  1. I LOVE Trailer Happiness. You are right about the service; so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. I'm coincidentally going tomorrow night actually, for a work's night out; definitely going to have the Airmail! It must be new, I haven't had it before. Anything with champagne in it gets my vote! :D

  2. The waitress we had thought nothing of splitting a large tab halfway through the night. She split it into six. She then kept track throughout the whole night of who was having what. Always with a smile on her face. I honestly don't think I've had better table service in London.

  3. Wow amazing! On friday it was particularly busy; they were very attentive at the beginning of the night (almost too much) but towards 10ish we had to wave their attention. To be fair, hardly a sackable offence. And I can confirm the airmail is amazing. I followed it with the Cotton Mouth Killer - oh dear. Drunkety drunk!
