Hot summer nights and tropical breezes, set the scene for your flight. All aboard the cocktail train, try these drinks to bring the tropical weather outside, onto the crispy, dry air of the cabin inside.
To help minimize prep space and time while on the aircraft you will want to prepare your garnishes and ingredients before boarding the plane. Chopping fresh herbs, slicing lemon wedges ect. Then store in a plastic bag until ready for use.
Other ingredients such as sugar, and or simple syrup can be measured out and prepared pre flight, so you don't have to over pack your storage space with unnecessary materials.
Some recipes ask for specific glasses you can either stock the aircraft with these items or go with more accessible glassware. If you find one you really like and you want to stick to it, I would suggest having the glassware available.
- 1 2” piece cucumber, thinly sliced crosswise,
- 1 additional slice for garnish
- 1⁄8 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
- 1 1⁄2 oz. vodka
- 1⁄2 oz. simple syrup
- 1/4 cup crushed ice
- Take the cucumber slices, thyme, and ice and send them through a blender until slightly mushy, not thoroughly blended. Then, add the rest of the ingredients, cover in a mixer or other covered container, shake, and pour contents into a glass. Add cucumber slice as garnish.
