This week I was lucky to be sent a bottle of Cassario Raspberry Mojito with Rum drink from ALDI to review as a potential gift for Fathers’s Day. Doesn’t the sound of it just make you think of warm Summer days? Which hopefully they will be by Father’s Day on Sunday 20th June this year. Although it’s a little way off I do like to think of gifts well in advance for special occasions. Usually on Father’s Day each year I would treat the men in my life to a little gift and a meal out. With life still a little uncertain right now it’s hard to know whether that will be possible this year so I’m on the look out for a special gift instead. Men can be so difficult to buy for but I think a bottle of drink can often go down well. This drink from ALDI is new so looks the perfect gift especially for those that like trying new things.
Firstly, it arrived reasonably quickly. It was extremely well packaged in an air shock bubble pod and then placed into a cardboard box so it arrived in perfect condition – good to know if you are purchasing as a gift.
The Cassario Raspberry Mojito with Rum is a new spirit based drink for 18+ which is 37.5% vol. It is available from ALDI from March 15th onward for £14.99. The bottle itself is attractive, a lovely shape and label well designed. It is a 70cl size bottle which I would say is just right for this type of drink.
This is a spirit drink with rum of raspberry Mojito flavour that says it has notes of sweet fresh raspberry, citrus and mint and is suitable for vegans. When I first opened the bottle I would say the smell is lovely. I could smell raspberry and perhaps just a tint of mint. My husband and I enjoyed this as an evening drink. We served it over ice. It does have a lovely taste and flavour however I felt a little let down as although there was an obvious raspberry flavour I didn’t get any citrus or mint so it doesn’t remind me of a Raspberry Mojito. However, we did like it and would drink again but it was quite strong so I would try it mixed with perhaps lemonade or a tonic. ALDI suggests serving over ice with cloudy lemonade which I think would be lovely.
Overall it’s a lovely looking bottle and at only £14.99 a bottle I would say it’s good value. I think ALDI are very good at getting the right balance between quality and value making their products great gift choices that don’t break the bank. This would be an ideal drink for many occasions, whether it be an evening drink or served for a party. I would recommend this product as a gift for Father’s Day or any other occasion. (Or even just a treat for yourself!)
Finally this is one of two new drinks from ALDI, the other is Cassario Tropical Pineapple with Rum which I’m now very eager to try. (After all, I should taste test before gifting to my Dad, right?) Both are available to buy online and also in store in ALDI for £14.99.
