A man in Australia came up with a unique idea to drink with his neighbours as he shared a drink with his mates while still following coronavirus lockdown rules.
The man is identified as John Mignone who posted a video to his Facebook page on Saturday showing him using a drone to deliver two glasses of scotch to a nearby backyard.
‘Sharing a drink with our neighbours while keeping a social distance,’ Mr Mignone wrote, adding that ‘alcohol is a sanitiser’ for those concerned about the glasses.
The video shows the scotch being poured over ice into two glasses positioned in a container attached to the drone by a pink ribbon.
The glasses of Johnnie Walker are then delivered to two neighbours waiting outside their house without spilling a drop.

People commenting on the video were suitably impressed.
‘This is gold!’ one person said.
‘Love this, so clever guys,’ another person said.
‘Very cool. Could you be my neighbour?’ added a third.
Earlier this week Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that Australians should only be leaving their house for four reasons.
These are to go shopping for essential items, to exercise, to go to an essential job, and to get medical care.
Even when venturing out for these reasons people should still only be gathering in groups of no more than two and keeping 1.5 metres apart.
