Some of Our Favourite International Drink Memories

Staying at all-inclusive resorts and getting cocktails and freshly squeezed juice delivered, without getting out of the pool, will always be a memorable experience in Punta Cana and Mexico. The kids still talk about their fancy pool juices!

But there are many other delicious drink memories that remind us of places we have been.

Drinking hot spiced Glühwein at the European Christmas markets is one of my earliest travel memories, back in 2009. We still have several souvenir mugs from Germany and Poland.

Enjoying shots in Warsaw Poland.

And there are those endless vodka shots and Mad Dogs that make up every trip to Poland.

Although after a hot day exploring the sights of Vietnam, nothing quite compares to the delicious freshly squeezed fruit juice or sugar cane juice, to cool you down.

Drink Making Essentials

Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, these are the must-have items for any home bar or drink-making session.

  • Cocktail Shaker: A shaker is essential for making cocktails. It’s used to combine ingredients and create that signature smooth texture.
  • Stirrer: A stirrer is used to mix drinks without creating too many bubbles.
  • Fine Mesh Strainer – This is used to strain out any unwanted bits from your drink.
  • A Variety Of Glasses: Glasses come in all shapes and sizes, so make sure you have some options to suit your different types of drinks, including some plastic kid-friendly options if making drinks for younger kids!
