Aldi is stocking its shelves with bottles of creamy new Petit Coconut Wine, and my tastebuds are prepared to take a tropical holiday. The tangy coconut wine has a 13.9-percent ABV and is made with a blend of white wine, cream, and rich coconut flavouring, making it delicious on its own — or a great base for piña coladas. Available nationwide for $7 per 750-milliliter bottle, the drink is perfect for serving with pineapple rings and colourful paper umbrellas at BBQs, picnics, or when you're lounging by the pool in your backyard.
According to Tastings.com, the drink features "aromas of coconut cream and white chocolate cookie" and tastes like "buttermilk pie, coconut macaroon, [and] vanilla yoghurt." A drink that sweet is basically dessert in a bottle, and I'm not complaining. Take a closer look at the creamy coconut wine ahead, and add a bottle to your shopping list for your next at-home happy hour.
