Sitting down in a First Class seat I was upgraded in recently, I couldn’t help but notice new first class ice cubes. Some people order certain drinks neat, others prefer a block of ice, while many more are happy to drown their beverage in ice. I’m in the camp of a few ice cubes enhance the drink, so I was pleasantly surprised when my Woodford on the rocks was delivered like this.
New First Class Ice Cubes or Fluke?
The boarding was normal but quick. Pre-departure beverages were skipped to get out on time, I’m cool with that because it gets everyone where they are going faster.
But once in air, drinks were delivered. I couldn’t help but notice the new First Class Ice Cubes…or was it a fluke.
The sweet brown nectar came with one overly large ice cube. At first I thought, “gee, this could be a cool enhancement by Delta” for their adult beverages.
A Woodford with a larger cube of ice? Count me in!
But after a few sips, better judgement kicked in and I realized it was just the expert mixologist up front that spotted the large cube and decided to exceed this Million Miler’s expectations.
Was I happy with the cube, you bet. Do I expect this to be the new product with larger cubes going forward? No, but I sure hope someone at Delta in flight food & beverage is reading this.
Love flying for free?
Looking for More Delta Miles?
Ice and water can enhance the already great offering of Woodford Reserve. But too much of either can wreck it too. I guess it’s all up to personal preference. What’s your preference, block of ice, neat, or cubes?
