Plink. What’s That?

We’re asked all the time where the name DrinksPlinks comes from and what it means.

We didn’t invent the word plink. It’s in the dictionary and technically means a short, sharp ringing sound.

We think it’s more like a cross between tinkling and clinking.

In our world, plink is that joyous sound of ice hitting the glass as you build a cocktail on a Friday night. [Is there anything better!]
How about the gentle plink of ice in a tall drink on a scorching day.
The plink of a mega cube in a whisky glass in front of the fire.
Or the party plink of all the glasses when everyone says cheers!

Plinks is a perfect example of onomatopoeia [say whaaat!!] Yep, we’ve going way back to year 7 English and the words that conjure up the sound of the thing you’re describing …  like sizzle for example, or hiss, or vroom.

So when it came to finding a name for our big, bold ice shapes, DrinksPlinks was perfect. And because our ice shapes and letters are slow melting (they chill your drink; not dilute it) our Plinks plink for longer.

Now you know where our name comes from and what it means, plink away.
There’s always a reason to celebrate.

The world needs more plinking!
Maybe we’ll put that on a t-shirt.
OK maybe not.
