Etymologically speaking it’s suggested the word pisco originally meant ‘mud container’, which is pretty disappointing considering it bears no resemblance to this delicious liquor.
Egg White.OK, egg white doesn’t sound that refreshing, but trust us – it works!

#3 Strawberry Daiquiri
Daiquiri is the name of a beach in Santiago, Cuba. It’s also a drink. Imagine yourself on that secluded beach with the faint sounds of Cuban Rhumba floating on the wind, the magenta hues of sunset on the horizon and a freezing cold alcoholic drink, made almost entirely out of ice, in your hand. That’s what it’s like to have a daiquiri at Daquiri. It’s daiquiri squared, it’s inception. Whatever it’s called it’s probably not going to happen, at least for most of us common folk. But you CAN easily make daiquiris at home with strawberries that are in season during summer.
Drink your daiquiri’s through these fancy Stainless Steel Straws.

#4 Gin and Tonic
Quinine, an alkaloid that naturally occurs in tonic water has medicinal, anti-malarial qualities. Therefore the more G + T’s you drink, the less malaria you get. Fortunately, endemic malaria doesn’t exist in Australia, so G + T’s just get you drunk. We’re fine with that.
#5 Bellini Cocktail
The Bellini relies on its simplicity. Just combine white peach pulp with Prosecco (a dry Italian sparkling wine). These cocktails are also part of the ‘champagne breakfast’ phenomenon, a nifty loophole that makes it socially acceptable to get drunk in the morning. Win.
Keep your Prosecco fresh once opened with the Pump it Up Champagne Bottle Stopper.
