If you’re feeling like your summer plans for this year are looking a little lacklustre, M&S is here to put the sparkle back into your summer with the release of not one but two shiny new drinks.
A surefire way to bring the glam to any summer drinks trolley, the new alcoholic launch consists of a limited edition shining silver bottle of prosecco and, hot on the heels of its sellout Christmas snowglobe, an elderflower gin liqueur glitter globe – we’ll pause to let those words sink in…
What’s not to love there? Prosecco? Tick. Gin? Tick. Make them both shimmery while still tasting divine? Double tick.
The Elderflower Gin Liqueur Glitter Globe is a refreshing blend of gin and elderflower, peppered with real 23 carat gold leaf for a shimmering feast for the eyes and the tastebuds. Delicious enjoyed ‘on the rocks’, this liqueur will go down just as easily mixed with a splash of soda and mint.
The Summer Conte Priuli Prosecco, meanwhile, is the classiest way to bring the bubbles to any party (however small and housebound thanks to lockdown), as it comes in a limited edition gleaming silver bottle – perfect for keeping and sticking a candlestick in when you’ve finished it for an easy DIY table centrepiece.
The golden bubbly drink has notes of green fruit and citrus and will go down wonderfully on it’s own or as the base for a sparkling cocktail, such as M&S’ very own cocktail creation, the ‘We’re All Gin This Together’. The store is hailing it as ‘THE cocktail of the summer’, and we can see why. Mix 25ml of the elderflower gin liqueur with 150-200ml of Prosecco and pour into a chilled glass with an optional fresh raspberry or two to garnish. Sublime.
In stores, the M&S gin glitter globe is £15 and the prosecco is £10, or you can now order a gift set comprising of both bottles and a bag of jumbo raisins and cashews to enjoy as you sip on the M&S website now. If you spend £50 on hampers you also get free delivery, so there’s never been a better excuse to order one for you and one for a friend…
