IT’S still cool to be part of the gin crowd.
Sales of the tipple soared 41 per cent last year, driven largely by a surge of interest in pink varieties.
Thankfully, things are looking rosy when it comes to deals on the pink stuff . . .
FUNNY SPIRIT: Comic Graham Norton launched his Own Irish Pink Gin last month — but it comes with a not-so-amusing price tag of £29. Spare your wallet by swapping it for the similarly fruity Zymurgorium Flagingo Gin which is on offer from the online retailer for just £16 — usually setting you back £19.50.
BERRY GOOD: If you are after a super-summery sip, Beefeater’s Pink Strawberry Flavoured Gin offers soft fruit flavours of strawberry alongside the classic gin note of juniper. It is on offer at Sainsbury’s for just £13, down from £16.50. I also love Lidl’s Hortus Premium Pink Gin, £15.99, as an own-brand swap for big names such as Gordon’s, £16.50.
SAVING: Up to £3.50
LIQUEUR LIKEY: Flavoured, sparkly gin liqueurs are having a moment, too. Whip up refreshing cocktails using Mystical Unicorn Gin Liqueur, £7.99, from Home Bargains. It’s a cheap swap for Asda’s popular sparkling offering, Extra Special Raspberry & Rose Gin Liqueur, £12.
CANNY SAVINGS: On the go and need an easy tipple? Canned gin-and-tonic is the way forward — and yes, it comes in pink too.
Grab a few Gordon’s Pink Gin & Tonic tinnies from Morrisons. The cans are £1.95 each but you can currently nab four for £5. Or pop to Lidl where their Finton’s Pink G&T in a can is only 89p.
SAVING: £2.80 on five at Morrisons, or £1.06 per can at Lidl
Deal of the day
PUSH your little one in a Tour 3 Buggy in grey, £138 at Mamas & Papas, down from £185. Offer ends Tuesday.
NEED extra storage for your staycation? Use Aldi’s roof box, rather than the version from Halford’s, and put the extra cash toward a fun day out.
Reader’s saving tip
ANTHONY MOORE, from Wigan, says: “Brass is hard to clean – but don’t buy pricey cleaner, use ketchup. Just brush on, leave for two hours and remove. It will look just like new.”
