Forget ridiculous baggage fees, lack of leg room and surly flight attendants. The biggest problem with airlines today? The complete lack of an onboard craft cocktail experience. Even in first class on most airlines, booze options are limited to simple mixed drinks. But all that changed with the launch of The Carry on Cocktail Kit. Over the past few years, they've expanded their line of in-air cocktail kits to a dozen options, ranging from Old Fashioneds and Hot Toddies to Bloody Marys and Moscow Mules.
You still have to buy your own booze onboard (or smuggle some alongside your 3-ounce carry-on lotions and potions). Then get to mixing. Everything you need from bar tools to bitters comes in each tiny tin with enough ingredients to create two intoxicating masterpieces. Order direct from the creators at W&P Design where kits run $24 apiece, or pop over to Amazon.com where kits can be snagged for as little as $14 each. Savings and better drinking at 30,000 feet? I'll toast to that!
