I’m such a lucky girl. Whenever I am looking for a new recipe, or something else that might be lingering in the back of my mind, all I have to do is look for something else (or nothing at all), and whatever I’ve been thinking about, kind of just crosses my path. Which is the case with this cocktail. I was wondering about a new rum cocktail recipe, something easy and summery, refreshing and tasty, and voilĂ , I instantly came across this recipe while browsing the internet for something totally unrelated. I made it, I loved it, it’s easy as pie, and it will 100% brighten up anyone’s summer evening.

What you’ll need:

In a cocktail shaker, add ice, rum, lime juice and honey syrup, and shake well. Add Prosecco, then strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel (and a fun umbrella if you can find one!)


To make honey syrup, add 1/2 cup of honey, and 1/2 cup of water to a small sauce pan. Heat over medium heat, while stirring. Once the honey is dissolved, allow to cool, and transfer to an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 1 month.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
