Fruity cocktails from National BBQ Week

For a tasty cocktail to go with your BBQ – especially now you may be able to have family around – use liquer to add a touch of watermelon to the drinks. Served with sliced fruit to keep guest refreshed during the coming heatwave.

Aldi have some new products that can help. Watermelon is tipped to be the drink of the summer – its Instagram-perfect pink hue and refreshing taste will also make it a great talking point for guests. From Beyoncé to most recently Harry Styles, the fun fruit is all over social media.

Raspberry & Watermelon Gin Liqueur (£9.99) – Crafted to perfection in only small batches, this Raspberry and Watermelon Gin Liqueur has fresh flavours of sweet raspberry and juicy fresh watermelon, with fragrant juniper undertones.

Strawberry & Watermelon Vodka Crush (£11.99) – A delicious blend of strawberry and watermelon, this refreshing vodka crush at only £11.99 rivals high-end brands on both taste and style.

Method: simply mix a single measure of either the gin liqueur or vodka crush with mint, pour over crushed ice and top with lemonade – add a wedge of watermelon on the side for added style. Or, if you want to be really extra, spoon the insides of a watermelon out and pour a healthy measure of the delicious spirit inside.

Simply top with soda and fresh lime for the ultimate summer sipping cocktail!

Watermelon is more than just hydrating, some research has found it improves heart health and may even help prevent cancer. It’s also good for sore muscles and mascular degeneration.
