It's true, around here we tend to criticize airplane and airport food more than we celebrate it, but that changed when I flew Cathay Pacific and tried their Cathay Delight. I was randomly upgraded to business class from Hong Kong to Los Angeles (which was a total dream, btw) and they served up this specialty nonalcoholic drink as soon as I sat down. Made with nothing more than kiwi juice, coconut milk, and mint, it's really refreshing, a bit sweet and tart, and my new favorite food find!
made by blending 6 peeled kiwi
plus more for garnish
Combine the kiwi juice, coconut milk, and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker and top with ice. Close and shake until the shaker is frosted and cold to the touch, about 20 seconds. Strain into a serving glass, top with mint leaves, and serve.
