#2 BIGHEAD, Burleigh Brewing Co.

Love beer but hate the bloated after-feeling? You obviously haven’t tried BIGHEAD from Burliegh Brewing Co.Australia’s first zero-carb beer, this delightful, local brew not only tastes great but leaves you feeling great too! If you’re looking for a beer that you can drink all night, don’t go past BIGHEAD.

#3 Canadian Club dry

Have you always shied away from whisky? The best way to introduce anyone to this delectable spirit has to be with a drop – or two – of Canadian Club. Mix it up with some dry ginger ale and a wedge of lime for the perfect first-timer whisky drink.

#4 Captain and coke

For the best weekend drink, grab yourself a bottle of Captain Morgan Original Spiced, some cola and a lime. This legendary mix is perfect in flavour, offering sweet vanilla notes from the spiced rum, which is only complimented by the slightly bitter taste from the lime. Want more rum recipes? Click here!
