Yes, the iconic coffee liqueur has launched a new ready-to-drink cocktail.

Made with 100% Arabica coffee, milk cream, vanilla and, of course, Tia Maria, it's perfect for summer.

The drink claims to be both indulgent and refreshing.

"OMG that sounds insane – can't wait to try it!" said one soon-to-be fan online.

It's also a great alternative to England's busy bars and pubs this weekend, which are allowed to open for the first time since March.

What's more, nitro technology means the cans create a typical frappe foam upon opening.

It'll be just like sipping on your favourite coffee shop frappe, with a generous measure of booze thrown in.

OMG that sounds insane – can't wait to try it!

The brand's Neil Jardine revealed: "The ready-to-drink category is in dynamic growth and has a bias towards a younger consumer, which is consistent with our strategy to breathe new life into this wonderful brand."

He revealed of the can's design: "We worked with street artists to bring a colourful and vibrant look to the Iced Coffee Frappé."

The cans are gorgeous – a work of art in fact.
