M&S has released their own pre-made versions of Aperol Spritz just in time for summer!
With the weather looking up, there’s one thing we’re all thinking of and that’s Aperol Spritz. It’s the perfect summer drink, fresh, dry and citrusy it’s everything you need to cool down in the blazing heat of British summer.
Luckily, if you’re a bit lazy like me you can get that Friday sunny feeling even easier with M&S’ version of the summery drink pre-made, taking away all the faff.
M&S’s Aperitivo Spritz is made with completely natural colours and flavourings and has a perfect alcohol amount at just 8% abv.
The 250ml can will set you back just £2 so it’s also a bargain, and perfect for a picnic!! The 750ml bottle (which me and you both know you’re going to opt for) costs just £5.
Sam Pembridge, M&S Drinks Developer said: “This is not just any cocktail, this is one of the UK’s favourite cocktails, given the M&S magic treatment and available for our customers in a can! Our Aperitivo spritz captures the classic bittersweet taste, ready mixed and perfect for summer evenings. I pour mine over ice for maximum enjoyment but sipped straight from the can is delicious too.
“Our cans are iconic with our customers, we’ve launched many great quality, exceptional value cocktail favourites including the infamous Passion Star Martini and we think this new Aperitivo Spritz is going to join the ranks of these must-have cocktail cans- treat your taste buds and give it a try.”
This Manchester lad has made ‘sneaker candles’ and they look mint
I need some of these for my house
This Manchester lad has made ‘sneaker candles’ and they’re as cool as they sound.
Crep Candle is the brainchild of 22-year-old Harvey Prince, who moved home after uni with a fantastically creative wax-based idea.
Harvey came up with the homeware idea in his final year of university, where he put plenty of time into researching moulds and candles all made from a different classic trainer.
Fast forward to October 2020 and Harvey started actually making the candles, probably ruining his mam’s stove with melted wax and taking up tonnes of space.
But the hard work and clever idea paid off as Harvey sold out of his creations in just two days!
One of his latest moulds based on the legendary Nike TN shoe has created tonnes of buzz on socials, meaning his followers have been on an upward slope.
Harvey and his photographer friend @joelhirstphoto who helps out with socials have been brainstorming over Christmas to step into 2021 with their best foot forward.
There are new drops every two weeks with this month seeing one of their most requested trainers becoming a candle – the Jordan 1.

This almost impossible clear jigsaw puzzle is the perfect lockdown challenge
It’s been described as the ‘hardest puzzle ever’
Someone has created an almost impossible jigsaw puzzle and it’s perfect for lockdown!
If you’ve found yourself losing your mind in the third national lockdown because you’ve already mastered banana bread and completed all your other jigsaw puzzles, well this might just be the one for you.
Created by Etsy shop, Little Flower Pot Shop, the clear jigsaw comes in four sizes starting at an easy nine pieces going all the way up to 144 pieces.
Now a 144 piece puzzle doesn’t sound too bad, until you find out this jigsaw not only doesn’t have a picture, each individual puzzle piece is completely clear.
The clear jigsaw puzzle also has an ‘Okay’ version complete with 25 pieces, while ‘Hard’ will see you scrambling to put together 49 pieces.
Prices depend on which size you go for and think you can handle, starting at £14.65.
Alternatively, you can grab a bundle of all four sizes for £59.57, which will keep you busy enough to at least forget about Boris for a little while.
One reviewer wrote: “Hardest puzzle ever!!! Straight lines on the inside is just evil. I finished in about 8 hours. Tediously.”
And a second described the puzzle as ‘challenging but not overwhelming’, whereas a third said ‘hardest puzzle ever‘.
