What do you get when you cross the scrumptious indulgence of , with the delicious decadence of the UK’s favourite cocktails? You get Gü Mixology cocktail desserts. Oh yes, we went there.


These three delicious cocktail inspired desserts give you all the happiness of happy hour, at home, and without the hangover. And you can even enjoy whilst wearing your PJs. Originally launched exclusively in Asda, you can now get your spoon into Gü Strawberry Daiquiri, Passionfruit Martini, and Espresso Martini at your local supermarket. We thought you’d want to know.



Why Cocktail-Inspired Desserts?

So why did our Gü chefs whip up these dreamy cocktail-inspired desserts? Well, research shows that 7.4 million of us drink cocktails when we go out, which is up 13% since before the pandemic. And there are more than 43% more of us making at-home cocktails!


We know Gü fans love delivery services, because when you crave Gü, you need it ASAP. That ties in with research that shows sales of drinks through takeaway and delivery services are up 15%, with 49% of cocktail drinkers saying they like the idea of a cocktail delivery service.


So, we thought: what if you could get the best of both worlds? After a lot of experiments and tests in our Gü kitchen, Gü Mixology became a reality.

When is the Best Time to Enjoy Mixology Cocktail-Inspired Treats?

Because our Mixology range doesn’t contain as much alcohol as regular cocktails, you can enjoy them any time of day. It also means there’s no worry about driving, or a hangover.




You can enjoy our Mixology range at home, or on a picnic, as an addition to brunch or afternoon tea at home, or as an evening dessert or late-night treat: you call the shots.


These treats are also great to serve at a party, as everyone can choose their favourite individual cocktail-inspired dessert. We think Mixology would be the perfect treat to make a Eurovision party go with a bang. Raise your glass (ramekin) to toast the victors.


And of course, you could always make yours a double (they do come in pairs, after all.)
