Nice girly drink

Advantages: fruity, refreshing, tasty
Disadvantages: Would rather have actual peach
I don't drink a lot, but when I do I really quite enjoy fruity drinks - Caribbean twist in the mango flavour is a particular favourite of mine. I really like Archers peach schnapps as a spirit where you add different mixers to it such as lemonade and orange juice so when I saw that they do a version which is basically already diluted for you in a bottle I decided to give it a go.
The drink comes in an archers branded bottle, it is glass so remember to take it to your bottle bank when you're done drinking! It is a 70cl bottle, this is the only size that you can get this drink in - there are no multipacks of small bottles as there is with Smirnoff ice and wkd. The bottle has things such as the name, ingredients and alcohol percentage on it just as you would expect.
The alcohol content is reasonably low at just 4% in the bottle, this equates to maybe 2 units if you drink the full thing so its really not too bad since you can feel like you've drank a lot and probably wont actually be that drunk. The taste is also very nice, Archers aqua is basically Archers plus lemonade mixed together in a bottle so it is fizzy and this means it is best served chilled with some ice! This means that as well as tasting nice it is very refreshing, particularly on a hot night. I haven't really seen this when out and about, just in supermarkets. In sainsburys it is around the £3 mark and often on offer 2 for £5. Overall I think I'd probably rather have actually Archers and mix it myself, but this is a good cheap alternative.
