M&S launch gin and tonic sauce in time for pancake day

We're sold.

Valentine’s Day is coming and so are all the romance-themed goodies that we need in our lives. Whether you’re single or taken, you can enjoy Krispy Kreme Valentine’s Day doughnuts, Lush Valentine’s Day bath bombs or Ben & Jerry’s Valentine’s Day ice cream.

However, with so much buzz surrounding February 14th it’s possible that you’ve forgotten about another very important event coming up – Pancake Day.

That’s right, the one day of the year when it’s acceptable to eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like your pancakes sweet? Go for a traditional sugar and lemon, or opt for a generous helping of Nutella. Prefer your pancakes savoury? Make yourself a ham and cheese crepe, or team them with bacon and eggs for breakfast.

Mouth watering? Same.

But if you want your pancakes a bit sweet and a bit boozy, then Marks & Spencer has you covered. Enter their latest launch: lemon, gin and tonic sauce.

Before you assume that they use flavouring to get that authentic juniper taste, the bottle contains real 4% alcohol gin.

You can get your hands on this delicious combo for just £2 at any Marks & Spencer food departments and Food Halls in the UK.

They’re also selling¬†Belgian Chocolate Sauce, Sticky Toffee Sauce and Really Raspberry Sauce for anyone who doesn’t want their pancakes drizzled with gin.

You’ve got a few weeks to decide which flavour you’ll go for, as Pancake Day – also known as Shrove Tuesday – isn’t until March 5th.

We’re so ready.
