There are some things in life which we classicists, educated back near the birth of Western Civ, were taught to avoid....

Pre-mixed cocktails were amongst them, perceived to be crimes against mankind (or at least the drinking public).

I think cosmo's taste pretty good. Yea i know its a girlie drink but I don't care. However I will stick with the Champagne when in F. At least I will now have a backup when they run out.

When i was on US earlier this month, I tied the Mai Tai and Pomegranate Martini stirrings mixers drinks. They were actually pretty good

Well if you were to fly AS to Hawaii you'd get to try the Mai Tai mix they have... in Y or F for free (1st one)... in F they add a garnish of pineapple & maraschino cherry too

But my favorite beverage on that route is the Johnny Love Aloha Vodka

So yes if presented with it in F, I'd try the 'girly' cosmo

I flew coach SEA-OGG in January and had the complimentary mai-tai....actually it was very tasty. The FA told me it was Trader Vic's pre-mixed and that she has seen it in Costco stores in California...didn't see it at Costco Store #1 here in Kirkland, WA though.

Just posted on Alaska Airlines Facebook Page

Now you can enjoy unique cocktails on select Alaska Airlines flights. Sip on our glacier-inspired margarita -- the Glacierita. Or try the Cosmopolitan. These are available on transcontinental flights and on flights to/from Las Vegas & Mexico for $7. We think it’s time to start the weekend! Cheers.
