Onboard cocktails: Alaska holiday punch


Flying this week? Try your hand at inflight bartending with our drink cart cocktail recipes and you might even make a friend or two along the way.

Erik Chapman, barman and distiller at Seattle’s Sun Liquor, which produces the premium gin, rum and vodka served onboard Alaska Airlines flights, suggests this make-your-own holiday punch.

“When you say ‘holiday cocktail,’ I immediately think rum and cranberry with ginger,” says Chapman. “And you can top it off with a squeeze of lime.”

Next time you’re onboard, ask for cranberry juice and ginger ale with your Sun Liquor Sun Rum – and don’t forget the lime garnish.

Not in the mood for rum? Chapman offers a gin- (Ginger Sunrise) or vodka-based (Moscow Mule) alternative.
