Drink of the Day: Airmail Cocktail

August 31, 2015 | By |

Monday is here!  Back to the daily grind for most of us.  Particularly those of us that know that this Monday is the last day of the month, which means…INVENTORY!  A double whammy today: Monday and Inventory.  I need something soothing to finish this day off on the right note.  I think I may have something.

This is a great Champagne cocktail; one that will take the bite out of the day.  If the bubbly isn’t enough, a little white rum with some other ingredients is just what the doctor ordered.  So, once I get off work today, it is time to pop the cork and pour myself something that will give me a good night’s sleep.  Not before enjoying a couple of these, however.

Hope your week starts off on the right note.  Enjoy your day and look forward to September!  Cheers!
