Summer is upon us and a fruitful array of sparkling mixers, small-batch spirits, delicate rosé and bold Barbie-esque beverages has launched to entertain our pallets.

From a premium sparkling rosé that is now available at Ocado, to an innovative West Country distillery producing incredible rums available via Amazon. Take a look at the best new drink launches that we are enjoying right now.

Settle in and scroll for ways to cheers to the arrival of Summer.

Wild Idol Rosé

Alcohol free Rose
Wild Idol takes alcohol free wine to a new level

Wild Idol has produced a vegan, Alcohol-Free Sparkling Rosé that has delighted Nobu and the Four Seasons diners and now you can sip it at home. At the pop of the cork, you will be impressed by the delicate aroma and fine fizz that lasts. Thanks to the use of traditional winemaking and fermentation techniques, the flavour development of the grape tastes similar to that of any premium alcoholic rosé and leaves a pleasant, mildly kombucha-like dry mouth feel that works wonderfully when chilled.

Dead Man's Fingers rum

Daring rums that break the rules

Dead Man's Fingers story began inside a crab shack in St Ives, Cornwall with the creation of their Spiced Rum which proudly "rejected crusty old tradition in favour of flavours new." It works all year round by incorporating Cornish saffron cake, pineapple and unexpectedly juicy, rather than zesty oranges. Since Barbiecore is here to stay, we would also serve up their pink, creamy, super-sweet Raspberry Rum Cream Liqueur - on the rocks it is moreish. The raspberry aroma is distinctive.

MOTH bar-quality canned cocktails

Enjoy bar-quality cocktails from your own kitchen

"Sparkly, bright, bold. It's giggles at golden hour…" MOTH has launched their new sparkling cocktails and we love the Aperitivo Spritz, which consists of bitter orange, gin, sparkling wine, and a dash of soda. Poured over ice at home, with a slice of orange and you'd honestly never know that this came from a can. If you love an Aperol Spritz, image a more intense bittersweet flavour and here you have it! If you prefer something light, the French 75 cocktail is perfect when lightly chilled.

Double Dutch sodas and mixers

Zero alcohol and endlessly sippable

Double Dutch are the female-led premium mixers and tonics makers who pride themselves on being "anything but predictable." The company generously donated 30 percent of its proceeds from sales of its 'Exploration Pack' to the Prince's Trust charity's #ChangeAGirlsLife initiative for International Women's Day 2023. We highly recommend the Cucumber & Watermelon mixer on its own or with gin, and we are so intrigued by the sound of the Margarita Soda and Cranberry & Ginger Tonic.
