The Cure for Your Holiday Travel Woes
Few things dampen a festive spirit faster than the nightmare that is holiday travel. After long security lines and frenzied connections, a stiff drink is a surefire way to get you back on the jolly track. Forget the lackluster airline selections like pre-mixed bloody marys or cranberry vodkas. Jerry Slater—co-author of the Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails—adapted two recipes from the recent release to up your carry-on cocktail game. All they take is a little prep work: Head to your local drug store to pick up some TSA-approved bottles, then prep your mixers and pack them alongside your other carry-on liquids. Once on board, order your booze and channel your inner bartender. These libations are guaranteed to improve your inflight experience, even if you’re stuck in the middle seat.
