If you replace the honey syrup with domaine de canton it's called a China Post; if you replace it w/ st germain it's a Poste Aérienne. Both are fun variations

Banks 5 Island and black sage honey make for a flavorful and summery drink. Can also be made with lemon. An Airmail without the sparkling wine is called a Honeysuckle (also a good drink).

Made with El Dorado 12 year rum, this is one of my favorite drinks of all time. I made this at my brother-in-law's wedding reception, and it was a huge hit.

3/4 oz of honey syrup is enough. Like better without the prosecco (4 stars)
