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.
- 50ml dark rum
- 10ml runny honey
- 10ml lime juice
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.
