Carry-On Cocktail Kits for In-Flight Drinks

The Carry On Cocktail Kit

New York-based food and drink design studio W & P Design has created a selection of 'carry-on' cocktail kits in collaboration with US alcoholic beverage publication Punch, designed for use in-flight.

Retailing at $24 each, the Carry On Cocktail Kit comes in three varieties: The Old Fashioned (which includes aromatic bitters and cane sugar), The Moscow Mule (with jigger and ginger syrup) and The Gin & Tonic (with jigger and tonic syrup). Each pocket-sized tin also contains a recipe card, a spoon/muddler and a linen coaster. However, users will still need to purchase the alcohol from the airline to create the drinks.

DIY mixology and home-brewing products that allow users to recreate bar-quality drinks at home are proliferating, as explored in Home-Brew Beer Machine, Create Your Own Craft Beer and Create Your Own Cocktail Machine. In a similar vein, products that allow consumers to upgrade and personalise alcohol are also becoming increasingly commonplace. For more on this, see Ageing Whisky at Home and Ultrasound-Aged Wine.
