TRAVEL experts have revealed the best drinks to have on a plane – and some of them even contain alcohol.
Some experts often advise avoiding booze on flights as it can dehydrate you.
Anton Radchenko, founder of AirAdvisor, also explained why drinks can taste different in the plane cabin.
He said: "Flying can reduce our senses due to cabin pressure, dry air, and even the plane engine noise, and decreased senses can cause food and drinks to be dull or bland."
But some studies have found that an alcoholic drink could be your best option.
A 2016 study revealed that tomato juice – often used on planes in a Bloody Mary – tastes better on flights because of the enhanced umami flavour.

Passengers are also encouraged to drink water while they're on their flight.
Anton added: "The limit of your water intake on the plane, in combination with the air pressure, can contribute to dehydration symptoms."
While drinking plenty of water is important, Sue Fogwell who was a flight attendant for 22 years, warned passengers away from tap water on a plane.
She said on Travel + Leisure: "Sometimes, on flights, we would run out of bottled water.
"If you see a pitcher of water on the beverage cart in economy class, skip it — it's from the water tank."
