With hot weather sweeping across the UK this week, there's no better time to discover a tasty and refreshing new tipple to enjoy in the sunshine.

Say hello to Asda's latest Extra Special gin collection - and they're all sweet shop themed. Drool.

The new gins are sweet shop flavoured (

Yep, we're talking a nostalgic cola cube flavour as well as strawberry laces, and rhubarb and custard flavours, too.

We're getting serious flashbacks of standing in the newsagents after school, spending about an hour deciding on which sweets we'd be scoffing on the way home.

The gins are available in store from today and are priced at £18 per 70cl bottle.

First up, there's the Extra Special Strawberry Laces Gin, infused with a sprinkle of glitter for a very shimmery tipple. It has that classic, sweet strawberry flavour and is perfect for a fruity cocktail or mixed with lemonade.

Next up - and possibly providing the biggest dose of nostalgia - is the Extra Special Cola Cube Gin, with a golden shimmer and unmistakeable cola cube flavour. Simply add to your mixer of choice with heaps of ice (you'll need it this week!) and a dash of lemon.

Finally, the sweet and sour Extra Special Rhubarb and Custard Gin mixes tangy rhubarb flavours with creamy vanilla custard.

There's also cola cube and rhubarb and custard flavours (

It's the ideal barbecue tipple, simply pair the shimmery gin with either a simple tonic or a zesty lemonade.

Speaking about the delicious selection, Marion Muir, Spirits Product Development Manager at Asda said: "Novelty gins have become a summer essential for our customers who love to try innovative and wonderful flavours.

"The new range has been created to ensure the gins are both delicious to drink yet also dazzling to look at, delivering popular flavours we know the nation loves, and at a great price point too."

Looks like we'll be making a trip to Asda this week - we can't wait to sample these in the sunshine!
