ALDI’S CHAMPAGNE COCKTAILS HAVE FESTIVE REVELLERS BUBBLING WITH EXCITEMENT

To celebrate Aldi’s own-label Champagne becoming the second best-selling Champagne in the UK (second only to Moët & Chandon), the supermarket has partnered with Pritesh Mody, cocktail-making marvel and TV mixologist, to create three spectacularly sparkling Champagne cocktails.

The celebratory tipples, all featuring Aldi’s best-selling bubbly, were served at Aldi’s ‘Veuve Champagne Bar’ last week, surprising and delighting shoppers who could enjoy them for as little as £1.09.

New research* suggests Britain is set for a celebratory Christmas, with plans to spend £4.2 billion on alcohol throughout the festive season and enjoy a whopping 430 million glasses of bubbly.

Aldi’s new recipes provide some delightfully alternative serves to a classic glass of fizz. From Christmas themed Cosmos to alcohol-free Spritzes, there is sure to be something to whet everyone’s whistle.

The party season just got a little more exciting!
