  • The last bank holiday weekend of 2019 (sob) is fast approaching, and it has been predicted that it’ll be a bit of a hot one with temperatures set to rise to a very welcome 28 degrees celsius. Wonderful.

    While many city dwellers will be flocking to the seaside to soak up the sun, others will be enjoying the weather from the comfort of their nearest beer garden.

    However, if you fancy staying at home and throwing a little bank holiday get together, Aldi has released a pink unicorn gin that will go down a treat with guests at any sunny backyard party.

    It supposedly tastes like marshmallows and candy floss, perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth, and also shimmers when shaken. We’re sold.

    It’s made by The Infusionist Small Batch and will be available in stores and online from Thursday 22nd August 2019. At just £9.99 for a 50cl bottle it’s an absolute bargain, too, but we’re going to guess that it’ll sell out pretty fast so you’d better be quick.

    Aldi is also releasing ten spirits in time for the long weekend to celebrate their new spirits festival and you can expect rums, cream liqueurs and tinned cocktails.

    There’s a Passion Fruit, Apricot and Coconut flavour gin (£19.99) and a Rhubarb and Bramble gin (£15.99), as well as a Strawberries and Cream flavour liqueur (£9.99) and a bottle of Passion Fruit Vodka Martini or a can of Raspberry Mojito (£1.29).

    Plus, there’s a sweet, fruity and slightly spiced Tequila & Mezcal (£29.99) which is available as an exclusive online offer.

    No excuse not to throw that bank holiday party now…
