With more bank holidays than ever this May thanks to the King’s Coronation (6th May) meaning more backyard barbeques and alfresco picnics, supermarket Aldi reached out to ChatGPT to ask the ‘go-to’ selection of refreshing wines and cocktails perfect for upcoming celebrations.
Responding with a selection of crisp wines and zingy cocktails, shoppers will be delighted to know they can find everything they need at the Cheapest Supermarket of the Year, for as little as £1.17 – cheers to that!
ChatGPT has been causing quite the stir lately. Built and trained on a massive internet dataset it generates human-like responses to a wide range of prompts. Using an artificial intelligence model, the retailer challenged the chatbot to plan a wider range of tipples that would go down a storm with party guests this summer.
According to the Chatbot, the two best wine options are Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, due to them being ‘light enough to drink on a warm day, but still has enough body to stand up to heartier dishes like burgers and grilled meats.’
Aldi’s Top wine picks:
Pierre Jaurant French Chardonnay (£4.69, 75cl) a fresh and flavoursome wine, this crisp white boasts flavours of vibrant stone fruits coupled with soft vanilla notes, finished with a hint of spice for a well-balanced acidity.
Specially Selected Australian Pinot Noir (£7.49, 75cl) a light pale but delicious red with an elegant palate showcasing plum fruits flavours paired with notes of classic berries including cranberry & raspberry – the perfect summertime sip.
For those who want to kick the party up a notch, for cocktails suggestions, ChatGPT recommends serving up some summertime classics, including a Margarita, Aperini Spritz and Gin and Tonic.
Infusionist Margarita Cocktail (£1.74 per serving)
Shoppers can cut the fuss with Aldi’s ready-to-pour cocktails, packed with fresh lime and sweet orange flavours that meet tequila and triple sec liqueur for a sweet but sour cocktail. Simply shake with ice and pour into a salted martini glass with a garnish of lime to tease out salty senses. And at £6.99, 50cl shoppers could also save 63% (£12) compared to M&S’ version! 
Aperini Spritz (£1.20 per serving)
Perfect for its refreshing taste and a delicious tipple on a warm afternoon, Aldi has brought back its award-winning Aperini (£6.99, 70cl) just in time for the bank holiday and can save shoppers more than 50% compared to Aperol.
Gin & Tonic (£1.17 per serving)
And for shoppers who prefer ready-made sips they can select from a range of Aldi’s ready-to-drink cocktails, including Greyson’s London Dry Gin and Tonic and Aperini Spritz for only 95p per can.
