M&S Mojito to go

This isn't just any Mojito...this is an M&S Mojito - so expect a crisp, citrusy flavours and a smooth finish.

Despite the sugar that goes into the cocktail, Marks and Sparks' version of the rum-based drink isn't sickly in the slightest - in fact, it has an more of minty taste than anything else.

The teal-coloured can with geometric design is also pretty discrete, for those worried about drinking outdoors. Though, we do advise you not to drink them on the Tube...

Price: £2

AVB: 8%
