Summer Cocktails in the Delta Lounge






So for the past year I have been flying around the country, training bartenders that work in the Elite Lounges of Delta Airlines. Why ?you might ask, well it is not my desperate need to see every airport in America or to build up my miles in my Delta airline program, though that is a nice perk.

But seriously, this year I  had the pleasure of creating the cocktails featured on 15 of lounge menu’s across the USA. I will admit that we had a slow start and plenty of hic ups, but our current summer cocktail menu is simple and delicous.  Each drink uses only premium spirits and fresh ingredients. So the next time you are in the airport, head to the Delta Lounge and for the small fee of $10 you could be sipping on of these delicous drinks listed below.

  1. I visited one of these lounges recently while on business. I was looking to leave a review for them when I came across this post. Just wanted to thank you for training the staff so well. I had a fantastic experience while there. Definitely made my airport lounge membership worth every penny!

    All the best
