I completely agree! (usually)
If only the ginger ale were more than lightly flavored sugar water. There are some seriously good ginger beers out there that pack a punch, and I'd be willing to pay for them in the air.
And why isn't first class more like this? I mean, I know elites don't always have to pay for it but c'mon, we would fly even more if we were promised something better.
That one's great. Is theoatmeal.com updated often? I'm going to have to start checking them more often.
Wouldn't it be great to have a dark & stormy at 30,000 feet? But I'd settle for just a ginger beer.
P.S. I've been searching for a good mixed drink including ginger ale which includes alcohol usually stocked onboard - any suggestions?
I'll have to think on that. I'm actually flying today because my in-laws don't realize that prices go up when you try to book tickets a week before... and flying the two of us is cheaper than the four of them. So maybe I'll try a few tests.
In the meantime, someone who wants to play the DYKWIA card can ask for a mutilated version of a horse's head. Normally it would be a very long orange or lemon peel with the end dangling over the rim of a glass of ginger ale, intended for non-alcoholics. Maybe a very patient FA would splice together short pieces of lime peel from the gin and tonics.
Jack and Ginger.
This has always been my favorite Oatmail aviation post:
I've heard of this. Not a huge Jack fan by itself (bad memories of one particular night in college), but may have to try it with Ginger.
Agreed... not a whiskey fan in the slightest but whiskey-ginger ale is delicious.
He has email subscriptions, RSS, Twitter and Facebook if anyone would like updates on new posts.
Thanks! Good to hear from another with similar tastes.
Let's see, next trip in less than a week, with high likelihood of UDU at this point. Will have to give it a try! I'll ask them to mix it light to begin with (which usually results in them just giving me the bottle and can).
Three words: Bundaberg Ginger Beer.
Of course you'll have to bet your airline to stock it, or join us down under on QF.
Jack and Ginger. Plus Fred.
If you're lucky enough to be on a United flight, Jim Beam Black and Ginger is my standard mid-air refreshment. Bourbon has a sweeter disposition than Jack and goes great with ginger-ale. I'm not sure what the other carriers offer in the bourbon category.
I will in fact be on United metal this week, so will try your suggestion. Thank you!
this should have included something about tomato juice or bloody mary mix.
pay for things in the air?????
Hopefully you're up near the front. They usually only have a couple bottles of the Jim Beam so you have to get it early! Safe flight and enjoy.
That's fantastic! I wonder what miles+copay would be between each cabin
ginger ale + duty free jack!
These guys are great!
Amaretto and Ginger Ale is good too. If they have Amaretto.
Also - I am not a whiskey drinker, but have recently been introduced to Jack and Cranberry. So good.
Just got my UDU up to 2B. Hopefully that's close enough
I've tried amaretto and ginger, and while I like it, it's a bit sweet for regular drinking. I prefer amaretto and orange. If I survive the Jim Beam or whiskey and ginger experiment then I'll try the jack and cranberry - that sounds interesting!
