And it’s best served with fizz, so it’s time to get those champagne corks popping!

Simply fill a wine glass with ice and combine 50ml each of Pimm’s Sundowner and prosecco.

What other new booze is launching for summer?

Ultra-premium vodka brand Ciroc also has a new summer offering, the limited-edition Summer Citrus.

Made from French grapes, it’s infused with natural citrus flavours to create a zesty taste.

Thriving with fruitiness, Summer Citrus has sun-kissed notes of bright blood orange, tangy freshly squeezed citrus and hints of lime zest, culminating in a silky-smooth finish.

And it’s been hailed as “summer in a bottle”, which us Brits might just need looking at the weather forecast!
