Fizzy Liqueur Cocktails From Aldi
10th December 2019
If you are thinking of organizing a get together this Christmas with some friends or family, then you will need to get some drinks, and this year at Aldi, they have some fantastic products to choose from.
Aldi was founded in 1946 in the city of Essen in Germany, it was created by two brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht, as of today there are now over 11,000 stores spread across 20 different countries.
The main ingredients I have with me today are a bottle of Philizot Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut, a bottle of Harrison Handcrafted Gin, a bottle of The Infusionist Chocolate Orange Rum Liqueur and finally a bottle of The Infusionist Passionfruit Gin Liqueur.
The only other ingredients I used was some orange juice, cucumber and some club soda.
Philizot Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut Tasting Notes
Aroma – “A lovely aroma of lemon tart on the nose with yellow stone fruits and croissants.”
Taste – “Touch of citrus, hints of lemon tart in length. A wonderful Champagne from Aldi.”
Harrison Handcrafted Gin Tasting Notes
Aroma – “Floral notes right out of the gate, with a strong aroma of juniper berries.”
Taste – “A nice sweetness to it, very floral, it grows stronger the closer it gets to the back of the throat, the length is very powerful, it stays with you for a while.”
The Infusionist Chocolate Orange Rum Liqueur Tasting Notes
Aroma – “You can make out a chocolatey and orange aroma on the nose, but you kind of have to search for it.”
Taste – “The chocolate orange is more prominent in the flavour than the aroma.”
The Infusionist Passionfruit Gin Liqueur Tasting Notes
Aroma – “A lovely strong aroma of passionfruit.”
Taste – “Passionfruit all day long in the flavour, even after you’ve swallowed, you are left with a delightful after taste.”
I’ve created 3 different cocktails, each including the Champagne.
Harrison Gin Cocktail
For this Cocktail, I’ve used, Harrison Gin, Monsigny Champagne. Club Soda and Cucumber.
Aroma – “The cucumber is the dominant aroma.”
Taste – “A lovely refreshing and relaxing taste, the cucumber is there and willing to share its flavour, you’ll still get the floral taste from the gin and the Champagne adds a citrus touch to it, along with the fizziness.”
Chocolate Orange Cocktail
Aroma – “The orange is most prominent, but you can still get some chocolatey aromas.”
Taste – “The orange is most prominent on the palate with a hint of chocolate flavours.”

All I used for this one was The Infusionist Passionfruit Gin Liqueur and topped it up with Monsigny Champagne.
Aroma – “Lovely aromas of passionfruit fills the nose.”
Taste – “The passionfruit is still there in it’s finest, with the Champagne, you get a hint of lemon tart, it’s like a dessert in a glass.”
