Toasting Monkey's birthday thanks to Carling and Aldi

Toasting Monkey’s birthday thanks to Carling and Aldi!

Last week I was toasting Monkey’s birthday thanks to Carling and Aldi.  Well actually, I was toasting being a Mum for 4 years, that deserved a toast or two I thought!

When I was at our recent Bloggers Night In, we were offered some lovely alcoholic beverages from Aldi and Carling.  I didn’t have a chance to try either of them on the night, but have since sampled the Carling Zest – Winter Berries.

Carling Zest – Winter Berries is labelled as a Winter Lager and only 2.8% ABV per 330ml bottle.   The lager includes a blend of blackberries and raspberries.  This is a limited edition flavour for the winter months.

Toasting Monkey's birthday thanks to Carling and AldiI wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this lager, when I first tasted it, I was surprised, the flavour of the berries was stronger than I’d thought it would be.  It wasn’t an instant winner for me, I needed to get used to the taste, but having drunk a few bottles now, I actually quite like it.  It’s a bit different, I think this would be a great lager for the summer too with the summer fruits involved.

Pop down to your local supermarket and look out for the Carling Zest – Winter Berries, in packs of 4 and 12.

I have also been toasting Monkey’s birthday with an offering from Aldi, not somewhere I have previously associated with drinks.

I love Irish Cream Liqueur, it’s the only liqueur I like, so I was very interested to see what the Ballycastle from Aldi was like.  Priced at £4.29 for a 70cl bottle, this looks very attractive for a Christmas purchase.

The verdict, I was very impressed with the Ballycastle and I will be popping into my local Aldi to buy some more very soon.

So I’ve been toasting Monkey’s birthday thanks to Carling and Aldi and I have to thank both companies for supporting our Bloggers Night In, and for introducing me to a couple of drinks I’ve not tried before.

Happy Christmas!
