M&S is now selling an Aperol Spritz style cocktail in a can

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: a drink in a tin is a wonderful thing.

Whether on a train, in the park, or at home after a long day, few simple pleasures are better than cracking open a cold pre-mixed cocktail in a can.

But if you’ve grown weary of your usual mojitos and G&Ts, rejoice, for there’s a new beverage on the block.

M&S, famed makers of 19 different types of cocktails in a can, is now selling their take on an Aperol Spritz in a tinny.

The Aperetivo Spritz is described as ‘decidedly delicious, slightly bitter with a sweet hint of orange and a light herbal flavour’ and is made with sparkling wine and orange bitters.

A 250ml can will cost you just £2, and feels decidedly fancier than a beer. You could even pour the contents into a proper glass and pretend you’ve paid for an overpriced cocktail from a bar.

If you aren’t a fan of drinks in cans (for some unknowable reason), you can also buy the Aperetivo Spritz in a 750ml bottle for £5.

M&S recommend the new tipple for summer picnics, BBQs, and as a walktail (walking cocktail), or even adding it to ice lolly moulds for a summer treat.

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.’

In other cocktail news, there’s a van you can book for doorstep drinking sessions (as long as you’re in London) and you can now buy Buckingham Palace gin.

Cheers, all.
