Flight attendant invents drink served on Delta flights

Next time you board a Delta Air Lines flight, you may be sharing a seat with Jack and Joe.

That's the name of a new drink created by an Atlanta-based Delta flight attendant, whose cocktail recipe won an international contest among flight attendants.

Three finalists were chosen to compete in a "taste off" judged by Delta's onboard service department and a team of flight attendants.

The Jack and Joe drink took first place.

The drink, now available on most Delta flights, combines Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey whiskey with coffee and Baileys Irish Cream. The price: $US10 ($A12.80).
