Vodka and Ginger Ale

Today, on my flight from SoCal to NorCal, I ordered a vodka* and ginger ale. While I recall an airline experience where ordering hard liquor results in the sale of a mini bottle (~50mL) of liquor, the drink just came out in a cup. This would be analogous to some airlines serving a cup of ice with the entire can of soda, while others just pour some of the soda into a cup.

In any case, the drink was a bit bitter tasting. It ended alright though. 6:27PM PT

*Their in-flight menu says its Finlandia vodka.

Vodka and Ginger Ale*
*A Moscow mule is made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice. Ginger beer and ginger ale are made differently and will taste different from each other. Apparently the main difference in making alcoholic and non-alcoholic ginger beer is the amount of sugar added.
