While I’m not much of a drinker during flights, it’s still nice to have options.

Southwest Airlines offers a variety of free drinks like water, sodas, juices and some hot items. It’s been a while since I’ve flown with the airline, but I’m pretty sure they offer free snacks like peanuts or pretzels.

Southwest recently added a couple of new drink options to their flights and there are also a couple of upcoming dates where passengers of age can get a free (alcholic) drink!

Here are the new offerings & upcoming free drink dates:

I recently found out from Nuts About Southwest that there were two new alcoholic drink options during flights.

Southwest Airlines

Tequila & Margarita Mix: Passengers can now purchase a margarita for the first time in over 10 years. If a margarita is your drink of choice, enjoy Sauza Gold Tequila and Mr & Mrs T Margarita Mix. The mix is free but the tequila will set you back $5.

Southwest Airlines

Seasonal Beer: Although the offiial Oktoberfest festival just passed, Southwest introduced Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest to flights on October 1. I don’t know about you, but I’d be interested trying this beer. Beers also cost $5 on flights.

Southwest Airlines

While beer, wine and spirits all cost $5 each while flying with Southwest, if you’re flying on select holidays, you can enjoy a drink for free.

Two free drink dates are coming up, one this month, the other in November.

Enjoy a free drink on:

  • October 31 for Halloween
  • November 26 for Thanksgiving

What’s your choice of drink during a flight? I usually go with water or ginger ale.
