Buh Bye Mile High Mojito....

Signature Cocktails

I'll miss the Mojito...

Corona Extra beer will replace Amstel Light beer.
Michelob Ultra beer will replace Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat beer.
Heineken beer and Miller Lite beer will continue to be offered.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I'll definitely miss the Mojito, but the new beer choices look good to me - as long as they have some lime for the Corona.

Actually nice to see DL bring new drinks. It used to be monthly but stopped, until now.

While I love Mojitos and I'd love to say I'll miss it, the truth of the matter is I look forward to the change. Anyone else have to return the Mojito to the FA because they made you a Margarita, or a Mojito with Tequila? I have at least a 1/2 dozen times. Maybe Mojito and Margarita sound too much alike?

Oh I'll miss the mojito too!

So um...any suggestion for the best virgin version of this new drink? I like pomegranate...maybe this mix isn't as sweet as the mojito mix?

I love the mojito! I don't drink, so I always ask for a virgin and its tasty.

I dunno what the pom will taste like as a virgin

Gross. Much like it would taste with liquor.

They tried this a while back. It sucked.

I liked it a few years ago when Delta changed around there cocktails somewhat frequently. Glad to see a little variety coming.

You can ask for a virgin one? I thought they are premixed already. Maybe I'll ask for one tomorrow.

Uh oh, this is the gf's favorite.

They were already out of MHM mix on Sunday on one of our flights. She ordered one, and when the FA couldn't find it, she was very apologetic and offered a margarita or something else instead. She wouldn't have any of it -- it was MHM or nothing, so she asked for her drink cert back.

We were thinking about status matching to DL as a secondary program for next year. If she finds out about this, she may veto the plan.

Yeah, they cost $2 in the back. Free upfront.

No, they're mixed on board. It's just Stirrings mixers.

I like the mojitos and will miss them, but maybe the pom replacement will be alright.

On the other hand, this is really, really jacked up. Mich Ultra, are you freaking kidding me?? I've suffered that product only once, and only b/c my buddies and I had cleared the officers club out of everything else, and never again will I touch that repackaged water. I gave up August Schell Firebrick with the merger, but now they want to diulte things further?? Heck, Amstel Light is a good product too, definitely better than Corona.
