Use Honey, Rum and Champagne to Make This Sexy Airmail Cocktail

About once a month, I take the women who work for me out to test cocktail recipes (jealous?). On a recent outing to a hotel bar in midtown Manhattan (it’s swanky, I swear!), the bartender introduced us to The Airmail: Sweetened with honey, woozy with rum and sparkling from a champagne topper. Make it and be inspired to send your lover a lusty letter instead of shooting him a text. Your sex life will thank me.

The Airmail Cocktail

The Airmail


  • 2 ounces golden rum (we recommend Puerto Rican rum)
  • ½ ounce lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 5 ounces Brut champagne


  • Add rum, lime juice and honey to cracked ice in a chilled cocktail shaker and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour unstrained into a Collins glass and fill with champagne.

When you're walking home from work on a beautiful fall evening and you think, "A delicious cappuccino would make my life complete right now." Then you realize it's 5:00 and you're too old for that shit.

You know what's awesome? When you're super-excited to meet someone and she turns out to be just as smart and sweet and chic as you hoped she'd be. That's Danai Gurira, whom you might know as Michonne on The Walking Dead! Tune into @abcthechew tomorrow to see us have some fun in the kitchen! #twd #thechew #fanboy
