AP On Air, a provider of fine dining services for executive jet clients, has launched a range of fresh blended cocktails offering passengers exotic drinks at altitude. Launched in partnership with London-based specialist Pontoon Cocktails, a menu of seven mixes will be offered to flight attendants along with the regular food and beverage menu.
Heritage spirits, herb-based products and fresh pressed juices combine to produce favourites like the Cosmopolitan, as well as bespoke AP On Air choices such as the Sora, Gotham, Autumn and Zephyr featuring ingredients such as orgeat, plum liqueur, damson jam syrup, whole cranberry vacuum infused vodka and peach and cherry bitters. The menu is enhanced by non-alcoholic ‘mocktails’, which are growing in popularity.
Each individual drink is packed in a compact pouch and is accompanied by the relevant garnish and flash card serving instructions, making them convenient for use on aircraft and meaning that cocktail availability is not just confined to aircraft large enough to carry a fully stocked bar.
Daniel Hulme, MD of AP On Air stated, “To our knowledge this is the first time that anyone has offered such a novel product on board. The quality and freshness of the ingredients is highly appealing to us and will be, we hope, to our customers. We anticipate that the cocktail menu will appeal to a wide range of clients and prove most popular on flights departing for leisure destinations such as Las Vegas and/or the slopes.”
Clients will be required to order a minimum of five cocktails per flight.
