While you fish out loose change for Cheetos and a Mountain Dew, one vending machine in London is giving lucky passersby gin and tonics—free of charge.

All commuters walking through Old Street station have to do is Tweet to @LoneWolfSpirits to receive a token, which they can then redeem for a frosty, canned gin and tonic. According to Food & Wine, the giveaway is a tribute to the 1800s, when during a period of gin prohibition, bar owners would create hidden slots to stash cocktails for those looking to get an illicit buzz.

Though today is the last day for the vending machine pop-up, here's to hoping the idea gains traction worldwide.
