Where: Hong Kong

If you like drinking at 38,000 feet (who doesn't?) and have plans to pop over to Hong Kong, you may get a chance to sample Cathay Pacific's newest in-flight cocktail.

Similar to previous contests, which resulted in Cathay's other signature cocktails like the Cathay Delight, Pacific Sunrise, Cloud 9 and Oriental Breeze, this year's winner will be served in First and Business Class cabins. If you're a fan of the previous winning concoctions, don't worry as they'll still be on the cocktail menu.

More than 1,400 cabin crew voted on their favorite non-alcoholic drink, with the top prize going to a mixture of passion-fruit, lemongrass and apple juice. Although the drink is currently nameless, the refresher should be available to premium passengers sometime later this year. Hopefully by the time it's packed into the in-flight drink carts, a clever name will accompany the recipe.

Here are some other signature cocktails from airlines around the world:
·Singapore Airlines - Singapore Sling
·Virgin Atlantic - Virgin Redhead
·Hawaiian Airlines - Mai Tai
·Air Canada - Iceberg Arctic Passion
·British Airways - Kir Royale or London City (served only on the all-business class service from LCY to JFK)
