Thanks to Keri over at Heels First Travel, I think I’ve discovered one of the most useless travel accessory ever – a series of three in-flight cocktail kits, each costing $24 and the alcohol isn’t included!

There are three ‘Carry On Cocktail’ kits available:

  • Old Fashioned
  • Gin & Tonic
  • Moscow Mule

To give you an idea of the contents, the Moscow Mule comprises:

  • Carry On Tin – 3.125 in. (W) x 4.25 in. (H) x 1 in. (D)
  • Recipe Card
  • Bar Spoon
  • 1/2 oz. Jigger
  • Ginger Syrup
  • Linen Coaster

A Moscow Mule requires vodka, ginger beer and a slice of lime. It is also traditional to serve this cocktail in a copper mug. None of these items are included in the kit.

These kits even make the items in the Skymall catalog look useful! The only good thing I can say is that the packaging design is pretty good:

And their website isn’t bad either. Such as shame that all that effort went into something so useless.

As they say on the Dragon’s Den TV show “I’m Out!”.
