SIP, sip, hooray – it is nearly the summer! But if you can’t wait and fancy an early start with a few pre-drinks this weekend, grab-and-go tipples are where it’s at.
The trend has come from the US, where the canned wine category has been valued at £34.5million.
This week bargain supermarket Aldi joined in with its own tinned tipples, and there are plenty more to try . . .
These canned favourites are perfect for summer picnics and days at the beach
PROSECCO: Aldi has just launched two sparkling wines in a can, both of which are just £1.69 for 200ml. The Castellore Pinot Grigio Frizzante tastes of peach, pear and lemon, while Castellore Rosé Frizzante gives off the “summery smell of strawberries” and “scents of peach”, Aldi says.Pick up these new summer sips and save compared to Morrisons’ Most Wanted Pinot Grigio Sparkling, £2.50 per can. SAVING: 81p
GIN: What could be better than a grab-and-go G&T? Save on your slurp by stocking up on cans of Gin and Tonic, £1 at Sainsbury’s — compared to popular cans of premixed Gordon’s, £1.90 at Waitrose. SAVING: 90p
MARTINI MUST-HAVE: Feeling fancy? You can even bag canned versions of your favourite cocktails on the cheap. Tesco is selling cans of All Shook Up Passion Fruit Martini for £1.50 — a saving on the much-loved M&S canned Porn Star Martini, £2. SAVING: 50p
CAFFEINE KICK: Need an extra kick with your sip? You can now nab espresso martinis in a can, thanks to Kahlua. The coffee-fuelled cocktail costs £1.90 per can exclusively at Waitrose — but you can currently bag three for £5. SAVING: 70p
