Queen Bee Mojito

Scott Phillips

Servings: one.

Camper English uses honey to flavor this combination of three classic cocktails in one glass: the Air Mail (rum, honey, citrus, and Champagne), the Champagne Cocktail, and the Mojito.

  • Put the honey syrup, lime juice, and mint in a chilled cocktail shaker. Press (don’t pulverize) the mint with a muddler or wooden spoon until fragrant. Add the rum and bitters and fill the shaker with ice. Put the lid on the shaker and make sure you have a tight seal. Shake as hard as you can for about 10 seconds and then strain into a chilled small coupe. Add the sparkling wine and garnish with a mint sprig.

To make honey syrup

  • Combine equal parts of your favorite honey and boiling water and stir to dissolve. Let cool completely before using. Store in the refrigerator between uses for up to 1 month.

    Throw out your regular mojito recipe, this is so good. The dark rum, honey, and sparkling wine add so much flavor that we will never go back. We just need to scale up the recipe-- a single serving is just not enough. Ha, this is why we learn math!
