Carry-On Cocktail Kit
Pack your bags...and your cocktail.
The carry-on cocktail kit provides everything you need to mix two proper cocktails at 30,000 feet. Simply carry on your kit (don't worry, it will make it through security just fine—it's been tested!), order a miniature bottle of booze and ask for a cup, then use the custom combination bar spoon/muddler to mix in the included ingredients. Place the drink on the included linen coaster and take a sip. Because nothing should stand between you and a very good drink—not even the airline’s so-called “drink menu”. Choose from Old Fashioned, Gin & Tonic, Moscow Mule, Bloody Mary, Hot Toddy, or Champagne cocktails—or go big and opt for the Full Bar, which includes one of each drink kit.
