If you have Instagram, you will be used to seeing images of groups of girls cheersing their wines with the hashtag ‘#predrinks’. These are drinks enjoyed at home prior to going out on the town.

However, pre-drinks are way more important than a swift one while you are getting ready, being an event in itself.

This is why today, we take a look at the most popular drinks people are indulging in before they even step foot in the taxi.

Flavoured gin and tonic

Whether wanting to fit into a tight dress or having plans to dance the night away at an event, the last thing you want is to feel heavy and sluggish. This is why many are opting for gin and tonic as their pre-drink, being light, flavoursome and minimal in calories.


Is there any drink more celebratory than a glass of fizz? We think not!

One drink incredibly well-suited to pre-drinks is the Bellini; a glass of Prosecco that has been given a little touch of fruity pizzazz. Common flavours include peach, raspberry, blackcurrant and strawberry.


White wine and soda is a combination that drinkers have been enjoying for years. Again, this is a drink that is light and refreshing; the exact qualities we all want in a pre-drink.

Rum cocktail

After gin, rum is the most-enjoyed spirits amongst 18-24-year-olds. Being fragrant, flavoursome and able to be served with a whole range of mixers, rum cocktails are understandably popular.

Below are some of our favourites you can serve as pre-drinks:

  • Dark and stormy
  • Mai Tai
  • Pina Colada
  • Pineapple caipirinha
  • Coconut cream
