If you like to have your glasses of gin and tonic, rum or whiskey , apart from leaving a kidney, you will be very disappointed when the waiter gives you a small glass full of mini ice cubes with a shot of alcohol and the soda thrown with a pistol.
For me, passionate about gin and tonics in a balloon glass in all its variants and modalities, a sacrilege?
Therefore, the best you can do is have drinks at home or at the hostel. Trust me, you are going to save a lot of money and trouble.
And here is the real thrifty advice: Take advantage of the Duty Free at the airport to buy the alcohol for your drinks.
The cheapest gin, rum, vodka and whiskey that we have found in Australia has been in the Duty Free that is in the airport at the exit of international flights, just before going through customs.
Of course, be careful because it is only allowed to carry a maximum of two liters of alcohol per person.
