DIY Airline cocktails

Recommended Posts

Hello 

I am trying to make airline travel more bearable by jazzing up the beverage choices.

I purchased a credit card holder which can comfortably hold 10  2ml glass vials.

My intention is to fill the vials with bitters, sugar syrup etc to make a cocktail out of the available spirits on offer.

My question is what cocktails could I make when the only options of spirits are likely to be Gin, Bourbon and Scotch.

 

I have currently filled the vials with 

Peychards

Agostura

orange bitters

Absinthe

sugar syrup 

salt syrup

Fee bros bitters

 

These will make me a Old Fashioned, Pink Gin and a Bourbon Sazerac, 

I am a novice at cocktail making and very much appreciate any suggestions.

Thankyou

I wanna see the video footage of you getting that little container of various liquid filled vials through security. :D

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

No problem

They are under 100ml

I have taken them through security, no questions asked 😊

I don't think that 2cc aliquots of simple syrup are enough for a cocktail.

 

But TSA will let all the airline bottles of booze through that will fit in a 1 qt bag. About 8 IIRC.

 

So why not scale-up using 50 cc bottles?

 

Or just carry confectioner's sugar which will dissolve easily and won't bother the feds.

White powder is OK?

Yup. I carried 2 kg of curing salt (which - in Germany - is not dies pink) in my carry-on once. Lots of questions asked,  yet still allowed to fly ...
