    Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away, and we’re being treated this year. Not only can you get Krispy Kreme Valentine’s Day doughnuts, you can also pick up a fancy Marks and Spencer Valentine’s Day meal deal and treat your loved one to a Lush Valentine’s Day bath bomb. Alternatively, you can stock up on this Ben & Jerry’s Valentine’s Day flavour and get stuck in while you catch up on the Netflix Fyre documentary.

    But if you fancy a night in, ditch the Prosecco and get yourself a bottle of your very own pink sparkly gin courtesy of Asda.

    The supermarket is selling the drink as the perfect addition to any romantic night in, and the Extra Special Gin Liqueur is made using raspberry and rose. As it’s a liqueur, it has a lower alcohol volume than a typical gin drink, coming in at 20% as opposed to 37.5%. So no need to worry about having a hangover heading into work the next day.

    And the best part happens when you shake it, as the beverage turns glittery and shimmers.

    Ed Sowerby, spirits product manager at Asda, said: ‘We know gin is as popular as ever with our customers, so we’ve been looking at innovative ways to create new products, at great value prices.

    ‘This Valentine’s Day, we think we’ve cracked it with this delicious, pink, shimmering gin with added glitter.’

    The Extra Special Gin Liqueur is available on Asda’s website as well as in stores. It usually retails at £12, but is currently on offer for a bargain £10.

    These will undoubtedly be flying off the shelves, so we recommend getting down to your nearest Asda pronto.
