Ahead of World Gin Day tomorrow, Aldi is promoting its wide range of flavoured gins including an on-trend watermelon variant.
Watermelon is certainly having a moment right now and is set to be the drink of the summer due to its Instagram-perfect pink hue and refreshing taste, says the retailer. From Beyoncé to most recently Harry Styles, everyone is crushing on watermelon and Aldi has a choice of delicious summery tipples from just £9.99.
Raspberry & Watermelon Gin Liqueur (£9.99) – crafted to perfection in only small batches, this Raspberry and Watermelon Gin Liqueur has fresh flavours of sweet raspberry and juicy fresh watermelon, with fragrant juniper undertones.
Strawberry & Watermelon Vodka Crush (£11.99) – a delicious blend of strawberry and watermelon, this refreshing vodka crush at only £11.99 rivals high-end brands on both taste and style.
For a refreshing cocktail that’s one in a melon, simply mix a single measure of either the gin liqueur or vodka crush with mint, pour over crushed ice and top with lemonade – add a wedge of watermelon on the side for added style. Or, if you want to be really extra, spoon the insides of a watermelon out and pour a healthy measure of the delicious spirit inside. Simply top with soda and fresh lime for the ultimate summer sipping cocktail!
If watermelon isn’t your thing, earlier this year Aldi launched the new Haysmith’s botanical gin range and last month, three new flavours were added as part of the 2020 Spirits Festival.
