Asda has launched shimmery gins that taste like sweet shop favourites

Bringing that extra special something to your summer, Asda has launched three new gins and they look as fabulous as they taste.

Inspired by nostalgic sweet shop favourites, these new flavours will take you on a trip down memory lane as they include a strawberry laces gin, cola cube gin and a rhubarb and custard gin.

Part of the supermarket’s Extra Special range, these bottles will make the talking point of any garden party as all three delicious new gins are as shimmery as they are drinkable – the perfect way to inject a burst of fun to any cocktail or G&T. They’re also a gorgeously vibrant red hue, perfect for making dazzlingly eye-catching cocktails at your next summer BBQ.

Each gin is perfect for those with a sweet tooth – the Extra Special Cola Cube Gin oozes that unmistakeable cola flavour, while the Extra Special Strawberry Laces Gin will instantly remind you of munching on the old school sweet after school. The Extra Special Rhubarb & Custard Gin perfectly balances the flavours of sweet custard with sour rhubarb for an irresistible tipple. Simply add each to your favourite mixer and muddle with a straw to let the glittery shimmer swirl around your glass for a truly magical drink.
