Best Drinks on UA Flights

Hey everyone,
I am taking a flight from ORD to LAS tonight and I have 5 drink vouchers I forgot about a while back that are about to expire and wanna use them.
Not sure if this is the place to post but what are your recommendations for the best drinks served on United flights?

Moscow Mule, fancy-ish bourbon or scotch.

Glenfarclas.

Although most of the FAs don't know how to pronounce this so I say the scotch with the red script name.

The best drinks are the ones you like? Why would you order Scotch if you drink vodka just because the Scotch might cost more at retail (it doesn't on the aircraft ---- still same cash or coupon price).

Unlikely UA will serve you 5 drinks on that short a flight.

If you plan to try to use all of them tonight, you may wish to consider ordering two at a time.

The New Belgium Voodoo Ranger IPA is pretty good though I'd recommend an aisle seat if you choose to imbibe.

For some reason I always love to drink Bloody Marys when I fly. Never have them on the ground. Gin/Tonic is my second favorite.

The Goose Island beers are pretty good as well, but I avoid them when flying.

I have had the Glenfarclas... and liked it, but I rarely do scotch in-flight unless I really need to sleep.

From what I have read it's the altitude that causes these to taste even better than when not flying.

In the "spirit" of the season. Sharing that bounty with fellow travelers.

Or reserve two to help with the Vegas hangover on the flight home

Buffalo trace with an ice cube or two. Always makes me feel at home on a UA F seat. 😂

Moscow Mule is great at altitude - not too sweet. Second choice Bloody Mary!
