Please don't. What's next, fried cod roe? (That'd be stegt torskerogn, Danes).
I did notice the Air Mixology heading to an untimely and undeserved death.

Depends on what they do with löjrom, it can be very nice.

The backbone of SAS's marketing department.

Yea, make the existing problem of to much localised disgusting food even greater.

Please don't.
Indeed.

Yes! As proper as on the street in Copenhagen

Apart that the cucumber was fine.

A great pity with the Air Mixology. On the other hand, it has been around for a long time.

But substituting five fine drinks with just one speciality is a typically SAS way of 'improvement'.

Since someone posted an image of the SK instructions on how to make the cocktails a while back, and most of the ingredients are likely to be on the trolley still, we can always revive them in our requests for a drink...

That's a fair point. When you serve oj with vodka as "Air Mixology" you need a) a swift kick to the face and b) drinking habits not stemming from Systembolag culture. A tip from the part of the region where adults are allowed to decide when and where they buy alcohol: if it tastes like potato, don't drink it.

On the other hand, who wants to take bets on when the Swedes ( ... ) turn SK into a dry airline in the name of political correctness (aka Truck of Peace diplomacy)?

Nobody on SK ever served that as Air Mixology. Though of course you could have it served as your pre dinner cocktail should you feel like that.

My guess as to why it gets removed, relatively few people order from the list. Seems (by my experience) to be Champagne, Beer and G&T for the alcohol drinking crowd for pre dinner drinks.

With regards to lounge offering: if I have to choose between CPH (SK) and AMS (KL), then it's the former, any time, without a doubt! Actually, just the beer (if one can still brand Heineken as such) can be reason to enjoy flying SAS and popping in to the lounge in Copenhagen.

The mixology thing was confusing to both SK and DL crew when I asked for it. 'Wait, let me look for the instructions... ah, oh, I need this thing which is not on my cart' (waves to other FA who is ignoring her) 'ok, can I come back to you, the cocktail will take a while, my colleague will bring it'. On my DL return flight I just opted for a G&T instead.

Tried all cocktails and they never had any issue serving it. Anyway, I'm not a cocktail fan (to sweet mostly) and won't miss them.

G&T (or only G) is good enough for me.

Btw the dinner service BOS-CPH was (apart from the long serving time) fantastic. Very surprised! Will post photos and comments later today

I flew CPH-EWR-CPH twice a month in C last year for a while; they did indeed serve some variation of a screwdriver at some point as Air Mixology. I found it amusing, but I'm a GT or bubbles kinda guy. Goes well with Ambien.

Sure it is not the Organe Blossom in the list above?

I couldn't be sure, I'll admit that. But I'm pretty sure I've laughed at them making screwdriver a cocktail at some point. I could've sworn it was under the Air Mixology (TM) doctrine.

The catering in KL's AMS flagship lounges is beyond dire.

While they are at it, they may as well turn it into a feminist airline, and name it the official airline of the world's only self-appointed "humanitarian superpower".

Kalles Kaviar, if you are lucky!
