While wine and liquor have been in the air for a while now, craft cocktails haven't really broken their way into the mainstream airlines yet. That is, until now. Austin Cocktails, a line of craft cocktails that come pre-bottled, are now available fleet-wide on Virgin America flights.
Austin Cocktails focuses on offering premium spirits that are not only convenient, but high-quality and unique. The founders spent over year coming up with their final recipes, sourcing ingredients from all over the world. Their hope is to change the public's perception of what a ready-to-drink cocktail can be. Obviously, they're doing something right if Virgin America snatched them up for a partnership.
Five-times distilled vodka is combined with natural flavors and sweetened with organic agave to create four different drinks for Virgin America customers: Cucumber Vodka Mojito, Vodkarita, Tea Twister, and Paradise Found (using stone and citrus fruits, coconut water, and basil). With moves like this, Virgin America continues to follow trends and give people what they want, making it very obvious as to why they were awarded the "Best Domestic Airline for Food" in the 2014 World’s Best Awards.
