There's no place like home for Christmas. But, unfortunately for some of us, the only way to get there is via air travel. Whether you're afraid of heights or just high ticket prices, flying at the end of the year is one of the more stressful December rituals many of us celebrate. While there are multiple ways to mitigate the hassle of Christmas travel (fuzzy socks, giant Toblerone), one solution is especially simple: booze.
If you need something to relax with (and take your jangly nerves and make them jingle), a stiff drink is like a mini upgrade. But rather than settling for a standard glass of wine, here are seven drinks that kick it up a notch, no fancy equipment required. Best paired with fuzzy socks.
Availability of drinks and alcohol vary from airline to airline. Be very nice to your cabin crew if you can't portion out the mixers yourself, or go with a simpler, two-ingredient option.
