With a history dating to 1945, Ozark began service on a route from Springfield, Missouri to St. Louis. A service suspension until 1950 (due to route licensing issues) resulted in the airline acquiring a competitor and its routes, then growing rapidly with a DC-3 fleet across the midsection of the U.S.

Ozark’s large hub operation at St. Louis brought the airline into frequent commercial clashes with TWA, and that airline’s large St. Louis operation. TWA finally purchased Ozark in 1986, adding Ozark’s large DC-9/MD-80 fleet to its own.

An artistic interpretation of the airline's branding is laser-engraved onto an acrylic swizzle stick, and each swizzle stick measures approximately 5.5 inches in length, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. The acrylic material used to manufacture these swizzles is suitable for use in beverages, but the sticks should be hand washed only, using regular dish soap, then hand dried.

This set of four swizzle sticks has been produced in four colors: Stratosphere Blue, Idlewild Green, Acapulco Gold, and Crystal Starry Sky. The choice of a mix of colors, or all four sticks in one color, is up to you! For good readability, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the swizzle stick material, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.

While these have been created today as our interpretations of original vintage swizzle sticks, their mid-century look and feel make them a great addition to your airline or retro collectibles, or they can go to work as ideal enhancements to the beverages you're serving!
