Aldi offers a taste of the high life

Supermarket teams up with top mixologist to recreate world-class cocktail recipes to make at home

To celebrate the launch of its new botanical gin range, Haysmith’s, Aldi has teamed up with TV mixologist and self-styled flavour guru’, Pritesh Mody, to recreate an impressive collection of world-class cocktails, but at a fraction of the price. What’s more, Mody, who is a regular on Channel’s 4 Sunday Brunch and BBC News, will be hosting a live cocktail making masterclass on Aldi’s Facebook. to show shoppers how they can make these decadent cocktails from their very own home.

With staying in being the new norm, cocktail-lovers can join Pritesh on 24th April live from Aldi’s Facebook at 5pm for a night of imagining that going out feeling. From muddling and mixing to shaking and stirring, Pritesh will teach step by step how to concoct and serve a selection of delicious cocktails. The night will be topped off with a virtual cheers’, cocktail in hand!

The exclusive recipes include Aldi’s own take on some of the most famous drinks from around the world, including the Jardin D’aldi at £1.30 per serve, designed to be every bit as good as Château Marmont’s Gardener’s Gimley. Or try a take on Novikov’s glamourous Wild Orchid cocktail with Aldi’s Bloomin’ Wild recipe, served at a sweet £2.13 per glass. 

Pritesh Mody says: With everyone stuck indoors, many of us are missing our favourite bars and restaurants. It’s been a pleasure to team up with Aldi and the incredible new Haysmith’s Gin range to create a selection of easy and affordable recipes that are inspired by some of the most exciting cocktails around. These drinks will allow everyone to mix themselves a little taste of luxury at home and perhaps even impress their friends during the now obligatory weekend drink online!”

The new range is available now and includes Haysmith’s Peach & Orange Blossom Gin, Haysmith’s Mango & Passionfruit Gin and Haysmith’s Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin.
