    We know exactly what are plans are for the Easter long weekend and they involve a massive booze run to Aldi. Besides selling their award-winning (and super affordable!) rose wine and gin, they’ve now made spring cocktails so much better with their take on Aperol – the Aperini Italian Aperitif.

    There’s nothing more refreshing than an Aperol spritz and we’re sure you’ve seen the vibrant orange cocktail gaining speed on Instagram. Now, you’ll be able to fix one up yourself for a fraction of the cost and join the fashion pack. Aldi’s take on the citrus liqueur which will cost you just £6.99; less than half the price of standard Aperol. Plus it’s hitting shelves just in time for the public holidays on March 20th, so grab your shopping bags and stock up.

    Julie Ashfield, Aldi’s Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying, said, ‘With customers planning Easter weekend get-togethers, we were keen to extend our spirits offering by introducing a perfect alternative for creating the popular spritz drink. It’s equally delicious served over ice with a fresh fruit garnish and a sprig of mint.’
