There was a time when anything going by air - mail, people - was unusual, glamorous, and exciting.
This cocktail brings all of those vibes. A throwback to an era of intrigue, excitement, and mid-century style.
No one quite knows the origins of this drink -- the earliest reference to it is in a Bacardi pamphlet, where, befitting its name, it was actually garnished with a real postage stamp!
Here we mix a favorite rum with delicious, bar-quality syrups and juices from Cheeky Cocktails, for an easy-to-make cocktail that tastes as fantastic as one you'd have when out on the town.
Garnish with a lime twist -- or to pay homage to the original, with a postage stamp!
