Australia, get ready to party with premixes!

The time has finally come – us Aussies can finally celebrate something worth living for… and that’s delicious premixes.

Long gone are the days where alcoholic premixes were filled with unsatisfying flavour – so sweet and sickly that we can all still somehow taste it. Instead, the premix scene has taken a delectable change – a change so good, that you might be confused at how something so precious and delicious could come from a can or glass bottle.

So, if you’re ready to celebrate the easing of lockdown restrictions with style, get ready to pop one open with the help from some of the best premixed cocktail creations:
