Lidl has launched a brand spanking new gin liqueur and it is guaranteed to give you all those summer feels.

Gin is having a moment and there's nothing we love more than a new flavour hitting the streets for us to swoon over. We've tried raspberry gin, rhubarb gin, and pink grapefruit, but now the bargain supermarket is bringing us another alternative - pink grapefruit and elderflower gin.

This alcoholic beverage is the latest addition to the Hortus range, and we can't get enough of it.

It has even been likened to the nation's favourite tipple, an Aperol Spritz, because it is vibrant and bursting with fruity flavour.

The pink grapefruit and elderflower gin can be served with Prosecco, or tonic water, and even an extra splash of elderflower cordial for those wanting to bring out the full flavour.

This is guaranteed to bring a touch of summer to the upcoming May bank holiday, and the perfect accompaniment for picnics and BBQs.

And if you bring a bottle along to a dinner party you are guaranteed to impress the guests, because the intricate detail on the bottle and the uber cool rose pink and pistachio green mix on the label is the palette of dreams everyone will be swooning over. It may even convert the non-gin drinkers - if they even exist!

A 50cl bottle will only set you back £11.99 from Lidl stores.
