Spring is finally upon us and that means its time to start enjoying alfresco dining and deliciously summery cocktails again. Luckily, Lidl has just launched the perfect tipples for the season – delicious pre-mixed cocktails.
Let’s be honest, while we all love indulging in a nice cocktail, making it ourselves can be a bit of a mission and it is more than safe to say not all of us are blessed with the talents of a mixologist.
That’s why the lovely people at Lidl have decided to do all the hard work for us and sell pre-mixed bottles of Espresso Martini and Negroni so we can enjoy the tasty tipples without all the effort of making them from scratch, or spending a fortune at a swanky cocktail bar.
The gin-based ready to drink Negroni has been launched to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the popular classic cocktail. Lidl recommends serving the Negroni over cubed ice with a swirl of orange rind for a zesty effect that will refresh your guests.
Meanwhile the Espresso Martini is described as a ‘perfect combination of vodka and coffee flavours’ and it’s no secret that the drink is a firm cocktail favourite. If you want to go all out, serve it shaken, strained and chilled, topped with whole coffee beans for the full Italian experience.
Each cocktail comes in a chic 500ml bottle with an art deco design and we’ll be the first to admit that good packaging is a big factor when purchasing our favourite beverages. What’s more? Each bottle – is priced at just £9.99, which if you think about it, is the same price as (if not less than) one cocktail in most bars – especially if you live in a big city.
So what are you waiting for? Get down to your local Lidl store immediately.
