Best Airline Cocktails for an International Flight CheapOair Staff September 21, 2010 Air Travel, Travel Tips Let's be honest, we all know that flying internationally can be somewhat of a bear. Flying domestically is typically bearable, but throwing in those extra hours can make it a little more difficult. Sure having a meal or a good movie can help, but you're not always guaranteed that. So what better way to enjoy the flight then this list of cocktails that will keep you going. White Russian: Although it can be tough to find on all international flights, you typically can't go wrong with a White Russian. Drink a couple hearty glasses of these and you may be sleeping like a baby. The drink typically mixes vodka, Kahlúa and cream for a good sweet taste. Mojito: Just the name, mojito, sounds like something you should be drinking while traveling. You can typically find this drink on most flights, as some airlines even have a specialty Mojito on their menu. Continental for example has their own Mojito, which is mint, cane sugar and lime juice, served with Bacardi Light rum on the rocks. Gin Rickey: Just about anything with gin is a refreshing drink on-board. There are many different versions of this, which can include just a simple Gin and Tonic. This version is just gin, lime juice and club soda served over ice and is a nice afternoon or evening beverage. Bailey's Irish Coffee: Drink a couple Bailey's Irish coffees and you may be snoozing the rest of the flight. Perfect for a late night flight, Bailey's is the perfect soothing, warm drink to help induce sleep. Just order a coffee and leave some room to add a little Bailey's. Screwdriver: The Screwdriver may just be the most ordered airline cocktail of all time. You can always expect that you'll find this cocktail on any flight as it's just vodka and orange juice. It's typically ordered on those morning flights when you need a cocktail to keep you going.
