QF cycle the pre-departure juice flavour, so it's a bit of a lottery. Two flights in the last few months, doesn't represent a huge cranberry result for me, but good luck It is sweet, not tart like the former VA pre-departure drink.Great, I hope to get it tomorrow night then...
The "something new" has big shoes to fill - but mineral water won't do it. Neither will OJ. C'mon VA, have something planned and ready to implement before you pull a favourite.
Those with a hankering for the mocktail might like to try mixing your own.
You could always ask them nicely.If it helps - here's the ingredient list from the Mocktail bottles before VA cruelly took them away;
Filtered Water, Reconstituted Cranberry Juice (20%), Sugar, Tahitian Lime Juice (8%), Infusion (7%) - Cinnamon (1.8%), Kaffir Lime Leaf (0.6%), Ginger (0.1%) - White Wine Vinegar.
This was all for a 350ml serving size - so you can probably guestimate the amounts required.
Manufactured by Emma & Tom Foods in Victoria. Don't suppose they'd do a run for AFFers if we wanted a case each....
So perhaps we don't need Luke's Syrup after all
The mocktail was made by Emma and Tom under licence for Virgin/Luke Mangin and was recently discontinued. It is different to the raspberry and cranberry life water.Just looked up their website - they do have stockists. The cranberry & raspberry is on Page 4.
Perhaps their supply contract finished and VA have either switched products or suppliers
There is a new mocktail in the pipeline as a replacement but is still under development and has yet to be confirmed.
