Travel Tuesday

I know it was just one week ago that I said I wasn’t going to continue with the Travel Tuesday feature, but I forgot about something I promised to report back on.

Nearly three months ago, when I was about to board our flight to Europe, I wrote about these adorable carry-on cocktail kits.

Well, I’m here to report that they were as adorable and fun as expected, with one exception. Let’s just say that there was a Lime Situation. More on that later.


The first cocktail I made in-flight was the Old Fashioned.


I “procured” our mini-bottles of alcohol from the complementary stash in our room on the cruise.

So all I need to ask the flight attendant for was a cup of ice and another empty cup.


The drink was fun, easy to make, and ever so refreshing.


Seriously delightful!

Next up was the Gin & Tonic.


Again, I had the gin and the kit came with tonic syrup.

I need a cup of ice, a can of soda, and a lime (or lemon) wedge from the flight attendant.


OK, I actually had a few issues with this one. Firstly, they have tonic available on planes, so the whole deal of making your own tonic with the syrup and soda seemed a bit of a stretch and silly. Secondly and most importantly, I need LIMES not lemons for a Gin & Tonic.


Evidently, planes don’t have limes, only lemons. I powered through and dealt with the Lime Situation, begrudgingly.

With the Lime Situation being what it was, there was no point in even attempting the Moscow Mule. A silly little lemon wedge will never be OK in a Mule. Enough said!


Next time, you can bet I’ll be bringing my own limes in-flight and making that Moscow Mule!
