In this refreshing take on classic tiki drink The Airmail—a prosecco cocktail featuring honey syrup and lime—head bartender Alba Huerta at Julep in Houston replaces the rum with gin and adds pineapple juice and fresh dill for a savory twist.


For the honey syrup:

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water

For the cocktail:

  • 1 oz. gin
  • 12 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 12 oz. pineapple juice
  • 12 oz. honey syrup
  • Prosecco, preferably Silvano Follador Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore
  • Fresh dill, to garnish


Step 1

Make the honey syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the honey with the water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer the syrup for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.

Step 2

Make the cocktail: In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the gin with the lime and pineapple juices and honey syrup. Cover, shake vigorously, then strain into a chilled coupe. Top with prosecco and garnish with dill to serve.
