Asda to launch mulled gin kit as part of Christmas range

Forget pink gin, the new Christmas craze will be hot and spicy

If you though the gin craze was slowing down, think again.

We have had pink gin, gin and Prosecco cocktails and the 'best gin in the world' on sale at Aldi - and the trend to soak everything in the nation's favourite tipple has gone one further.

Asda has revealed its new Christmas range early this year and for the first time it will sell mulled gin.

The traditional spicy Christmas drink will now be available with gin as part of a mulled cocktail kit on sale at the supermarket.

Asda says: "One for gin lovers. A twist on traditional mulled wine, this fragranced kit of dried fruit, cinnamon, rose petals, juniper, ginger and star anise looks beautiful in a glass.

"It makes a delicious and warming non alcoholic drink blended with fruit juice or festive tipple mixed with your choice of gin."

The supermarket has not stopped there.

Other items listed in its Christmas list include a Sloe Gin Ham Joint, inspired by 'the nation's love of gin'.

Desserts are covered by the new Sloe Gin and Cranberry Jelly for the cheeseboard and Belgian Chocolate Gin Truffles.

The Christmas menu also includes another drinks craze, Prosecco in the form of a pannetone dessert.

Other new Christmas treats include Deer in Duvets - venison sausages wrapped in bacon - and foot-long eclairs.

The Christmas range, including the mulled gin, will be arriving in stores later in the year and will be available to order online .
