Honey PopSeptember 24, 2015
As the seasons transition, I wanted to find a rum cocktail that was the perfect bridge between summer and fall. A play on the Mojito, yet inspiration by the Dark and Stormy. Enter the Honey Pop! The honey gives this cocktails a more natural flavor which I love. I use local Chestnut Hill, MA honey spun by a close friend of mine! Floral honeys are perfect for this cocktail too. You can include a mint garnish if you choose, I tend to leave it out. Break out this cocktail for a celebration, it pairs perfectly with hydrangeas!
- 2 oz white rum (highly recommend Privateer's White Rum)
- 1 oz honey syrup (equal parts of honey and water, melt together and cool before use)
- 1 oz lime juice (fresh squeezed of course)
- Crushed ice
- Lime wedge
- Mix first three ingredients.
- Pour over crushed ice.
- Top with champagne.
- Garnish with lime wedge.
