Air Mail

For many years, it was believed that the first written acknowledgment of the Airmail cocktail was in Esquire’s 1949 edition of Handbook for Hosts after being brought to life in Havana, Cuba, right around the time that airmail was the closest thing there was to present-day email. The combination of rum and Champagne is as refreshing as it is sophisticated. Some enthusiasts describe the cocktail as being a rum-based French 75.
