Here we have the Tequila Honeysuckle:

.5 oz Lillet Blanc
.5 oz St. Germain
.5 oz Honey Syrup (equal parts honey and water combined)
.75 oz Lemon Juice
3 oz Champagne

Put ice and all ingredients into the shaker and shake for 10 seconds. Strain into a Champagne glass. Top it off with Champagne of your choice and enjoy!                                                                                                                         the-parasol-cocktail-paris-club

My last and favorite cocktail (because of the rum) is the Rum Babalu

Ingredients:

2 parts Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year rum ( I use Mount Gay or Appleton Estate Rum)

.75 part fresh lime juice

.5 part maple syrup

1 part ginger beer

1 dash of Angostura bitters

Garnish: Orange peel

Everything is added into a shaker with ice except the ginger.  Mix well, then strain over in your glass of choice topped off with ginger beer ( any ginger beer will do) and garnish with a slice of orange.
