Carry on Cocktail Kit: Craft Cocktails at 30,000 feet
I recently received a Carry on Cocktail Kit as a gift and in November was able to try it out on a flight home from Kona, Hawaii. The Old Fashioned kit we enjoyed came in the trademark metal tin, complete with a linen coaster, small vial of bitters, individuals packs of cane sugar and a mixing spoon with one end designed for muddling ingredients. Even our flight attendants were charmed by the vintage-looking feel of the kit, which also comes in everything from the Moscow Mule to Bloody Mary. The only thing missing is the alcohol.
