Aldi* has definitely become one of my favourite shops, I mean you can pop in for a pint of milk and leave with a Jo Malone dupe candle for £4! What's not to love!

They have just stolen my heart (and my cash) again with their latest offering... Colour Changing Gin!

The Forest Fruits gin from McQueen Gin changes from a pale blue to pink when it comes into contact with any acidic mixer or garnish, so pour yourself a G&T and watch it magically change colour!

The magical colour change happens because the drink is distilled with the blue petals of the Asian butterfly flower, which amazingly changes colour when the PH levels are adjusted. Or if anyone asks you just tell them it's 'MAGIC'!

Dale McQueen, managing director and co-founder of McQueen Gin, said:

‘Not only does our new artisan gin taste great, but it also brings a little bit of theatre to gin o’clock. ‘Perfect to share with friends, it’s a delicious fruity gin with a difference. Add a squeeze of lime first and see what shade of pink the gin goes, then add the tonic and it will change again.’

The colour changing gin will set you back £19.99 for 50cl but it is currently only available in Scottish Aldi stores. I have everything crossed it will be available in all UK stores soon!

If you're nowhere near a Scottish store then fear not as Marks and Spencer have their own colour changing gins for £20 too, hurrah!
