Ryanair has launched a new in-flight drinks menu - offering a first chance to enjoy a cocktail on board. The menu features seven delicious cocktails to get holidaymakers in the mood.

The budget airline has collaborated with Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail to create the new menu, which includes a range of refreshing and summery cocktails.

Passengers can choose from the likes of the Dublin Lemonade (Jameson Irish Whiskey, Sprite Zero and sparkling water), the Fruit Snack (Bombay Sapphire Gin, Sprite Zero and Capri-sun), the Rose Spritz (rose wine and Sprite Zero) and the Flying Iced Tea (Bombay Sapphire Gin, Absolut Vodka and Coca-Cola).

Other drinks include the Tennesse Surfer, the French 75 and the Tropical Fizz.

The new cocktails are available on all Ryanair flights from today, and prices start from just €9.50 (£8).

Ryanair's Head of Comms, Jade Kirwan said: "Summer is finally here, and what better way to kickstart your summer holiday than with a delicious cocktail from Ryanair's new in-flight cocktail menu.

"Adding to our already extensive range of in-flight food and beverage options, our new cocktail range offers a selection of seven ready to drink cocktails, from Flying Iced Tea to French 75 to Rose Spritz and more."

The new drinks menu is sure to be a hit with Ryanair passengers, and it provides a new way to prepare for that hard-earned summer break.

Meanwhile, holidaymakers are in for a summer flights boost after Ryanair said its tickets will be cheaper than expected. The budget airline's boss Michael O'Leary blamed "a recessionary feel around Europe" for holding back how much it was able to hike prices so far this year.

It is already discounting some summer midweek tickets to £17 and said it would continue to do so to ensure planes are full.
