Airplane bartending: The carry-on old fashioned cocktail kit

This Old Fashioned carry on cocktail kit makes it easy to drink in style, 30,000 feet in the air

The next time you're cruising at 30,000 feet in the air, wouldn't it be nice to sit down to a proper old fashioned? It could make that holiday flight across country just a tad more bearable. 

A company producing a product called the Carry On Cocktail Kit has your airplane cocktail needs in mind. It has created a compact silver case that contains everything you need to make a proper old fashioned, minus the bourbon. You can just order a small bottle from the flight attendant. 

In the kit is a small vial of aromatic bitters, which the company says  were crafted in small batches by bitters geniuses in Brooklyn; two packets of raw Demerara cane sugar; a mini, stainless steel hybrid bar spoon and cocktail muddler; and a linen coaster to add a bit of class. There's also a recipe card, in case you don't know what you're doing. 

If you're worried about getting the kit through security, the company assures customers on its website: "It will make it through security just fine." 

The kits are available on for $24. Each kit comes with enough supplies to make two old fashioneds -- one for you and one for your new cute friend across the aisle.
