A sweet surprise (Picture: Aldi)
It’s hot cross bun season, making weekend mornings that bit toastier and flavourful.
Set to arrive in time for Easter, the new drink will land on shelves March 31.
As an adult Easter treat, why not try a sweet alcoholic tipple?
Whether for a gathering, party, or quiet night in, hot cross buns now have a place in liquid form.
The Infusionist Hot Cross Bun Gin Liqueur will sell for £8.99.
The unique liqueur blends caramel, raisin and gin flavours for a fun hot cross bun inspired drink.

There’s also a subtle hit of spice, making it rich and moreish.
At 20% ABV, you can have it neat, with ice, or making a cocktail of sorts.
Aldi recommend mixing it in with ginger ale and a slice of fresh orange, or going for a hot cross bun espresso martini.
Alongside this drink, Aldi is launching new hot cross bun flavours, such as strawberries and cream and triple chocolate.

M&S also stocks a hot cross bun flavoured liqueur that’s already on sale, if waiting until the end of the month feels too far away.
The difference however, is that M&S’ offering is a cream liqueur, like Baileys.
Super fans of the flavour may as well try both varieties and get into the Easter mood.
If that’s not enough, Kellogg’s is releasing a hot cross bun flavoured cereal too.
There’s an abundance of choice… even while Greggs is breaking our hearts by ditching the classic Easter treat.
