What a stupid trend. Yet, in light of the matter, it makes sense. Especially since pax can fill an empty water bottle with Vodka and mix their own drinks (and their neighbor's) rather than wait and wait until a F/A can bring a another round. Beer can pass as ginger ale and rum as ice tea.

It will save the airline booze money, they don't need to pay for that extra 1 or 2 F/A's- or for the fuel to haul them, and the pax can save cash and get a better quality drunk going!
