Last Call

How to Make an Airmail Cocktail

As the year draws to a close, it becomes ever easier to find a reason to break out the bubbly. Not that Last Call has ever needed a reason, mind you. My current excuse? There's a new social club, Rose. Rabbit. Lie., opening in my favorite vacation haunt, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. They're doing all manner of obscure vintage cocktails on their list to go with the overall vintage theme of the place. I can't wait to get up there.

Since I'm not going to make it out of town any time soon, the best I can do is bring some of the party to my living room. The drink that caught my eye is the Airmail cocktail, which includes both bubbly and rum. How it took me this long to unearth something this suited to my personal tastes, I have no idea.
