12 drinks of Christmas – The Airmail

Is that the cheerful clinking of glasses we hear? As friends come together to celebrate, raise a toast to the party season with our dozen deliciously simple cocktails – all with a festive twist.

First in our series is The Airmail, a sparkling classic from the heyday of aviation.


  • 20ml golden rum
  • 15ml lime juice
  • 10ml honey
  • champagne


Stir honey with rum to blend, add lime juice and shake. Pour into a martini glass or flute and top with champagne.

We’d recommend Mount Gay Barbados Rum (£18 for 70cl) for this particular cocktail.
