The cocktails you can make on a long-haul flight

1.jpg

As anyone who’s ever flown long-haul in economy class will attest, mid-air boozing is fraught with uncertainty:

'Are those minuscule bottles all we're allowed to order?' 'What do I do with all this ice now my thimble of alcoholic beverage has gone?' 'Why don’t I drink more ginger ale - this is delicious!'

Pretty much the only thing you can be certain of is that those small bottles of house red with the twist caps won’t be corked.

Nonetheless, airlines stock more drinks than you’d think to ask for, and thanks to this revealing infographic which details all the cocktails one can put together using the right ingredients, your next jaunt away might feel a little bit more special.

Whether it’s something strong for a nightcap, or a pick-me-up to ensure you make it through the remainder of that Taken sequel you couldn’t be bothered to watch when it was out in cinemas, this list should have you covered.
