Asda has released brand new flavours of gin all based on classic sweets like Rhubarb and Custard and Strawberry Laces.
If you’re a fan of sweets and gin, Asda has created some ultimate drinks that combine the two and they’re perfect for summer.
You can grab a golden shimmering Cola Cube gin or a shimmery Strawberry Laces gin in 70cl bottles that will set you back £18.
There’s also a brand new Rhubarb & Custard flavoured gin that is also sparkling and best served with whatever your favourite mixer is.
The Extra Special range also includes Pear Drop Gin best served with cucumber and tonic to make a shimmering pink and gold swirl.
There’s also Parma Violet that goes perfectly with lemonade, changing it to a bright purple colour and finally a Lemon Sherbet flavoured gin.
The gins come in 70cl bottles and are all priced at £18 and available at Asda online or in-store.
Ed Sowerby, ASDA spirits product manager, commented: “Novelty, quality gins have become a summer must-have for customers looking to entertain with flair and flavour.
“Working closely with our suppliers, we’ve created a range of gins which are both glitzy and gorgeous to look at, but also deliver popular flavours the nation knows and loves.”
The new range will be paired perfectly with the hot weather that is forecast for this week, sipping them in your garden with your toes in a paddling pool you’ll be thinking you’re on holiday!
If they sound a little too sweet for you there are plenty of other varieties of gin in Asda’s shelves including Verano’s two new flavours inspired by Spain. You can grab a pink Watermelon Gin or a tropical Passion Fruit Gin for £20 each, currently on offer.
You can head over to the Asda site here to grab some of them.

The Manchester bars now serving food to stay open in tier 3
Show your support where you can.
Several bars are now serving food so they can stay open in the new tier 3 restrictions.
Tier 3 restrictions are now in place in Greater Manchester meaning bars not serving ‘substantial’ meals have to close, estimated at 2,000 venues.
However, many bars who have been open since July 4th with new Covid-secure measures in place are quickly adapting their offering to now serving food so they can remain open.
Anything ‘like a main lunchtime or evening meal’ is deemed ‘substantial’ by the government’s official definition.
G-A-Y is now serving a low-price nostalgic food menu called ‘Not The Ivy But Substantial’.
The menu includes a range of brilliant grub all for £2, including beans on toast, jacket potatoes, and cheese and tomato pizza with chips.
The Sis4ers gin distillery has launched a new afternoon tea concept while the Red Lion Inn in Whitworth is offering £1.50 beef dripping chip butties. The bar said ”some would say is a pretty… substantial meal… if you’re picking up what we’re putting down here’
Sammys Cocktail bar is now serving bagels at just £3, including salt beef, pastrami, smoked salmon and cream cheese and a vegan version of the smoked salmon bagel.
Craft beer bar The Crooked Man in Prestwich is now hosting a pop up from SanSan, which includes massive sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and even their famous bacon waffle sandwich.
Popular takeaway shop Cafe Marhaba have offered up their services to pubs and bars to help them stay open. On Instagram they said: “We think we may be able to provide a pop up service or meal kits which you can put together to provide your customers with a substantial meal.” Send them a DM if you’re interested.

The petrifying pizza is available for a limited time only, so get to your Morrisons quick if you want some spice in your life.
Get a pint of milk too whilst you’re there, you’ll probably need it.
