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!
1 oz. White Rum
1 Tsp. Fresh Lime Juice
1 Tsp. Honey Syrup
Champagne or Sparkling Wine
Twist of Lemon
Method: Build this in a Champagne flute by pouring in the first three ingredients. Stir these together using a drinking straw. Top off with about 5 – 6 ounces of Champagne or sparkling wine. Take a twist of lemon and rub it softly on the rim of the glass before dropping it into the drink.
