Air Mail: The Elegant Champagne Drink That You Need To Know
Shortly after airmail technology became popular in Cuba in 1930, Bacardi rum released a postage-sealed advertisement pamphlet depicting a commemorative Air Mail cocktail.
The Air Mail is a mixture of Bacardi, lime juice, honey syrup, and champagne. Americans would fly to drink it in Cuba due to Prohibition, which is likely how the U.S. picked it up.
In the decades following the 1940s, the Air Mail cocktail slowed in popularity — as did its namesake, which was discontinued by the U.S. Postal Service in 1977.
Traditionally, this cocktail is served in a highball glass over ice and is often garnished with lime or fresh mint. The champagne can be swapped for a dry sparkling wine.
