It has natural colours and flavours but boasts a strong ABV of 8 per cent. If you’re hosting at home, you might prefer the 750ml bottle, which costs £5.

Speaking about the latest launch, Sam Pembridge, M&S Drinks Developer said: ‘This is not just any cocktail, this is one of the UK’s favourite cocktails, given the M&S magic treatment and available for our customers in a can!

Our Aperitivo spritz captures the classic bittersweet taste, ready mixed and perfect for summer evenings. I pour mine over ice for maximum enjoyment but sipped straight from the can is delicious too. ‘

Top three selling cocktails in a can from M&S:

  1. Pink Passionstar Martini
  2. Pina Colada
  3. Mojito

However, given Aperol Spritz has been named the favourite cocktail in 14 cities across the UK, M&S predict that the Aperitivo Spritz could soon take the top spot.
