A summer heatwave is sweeping the UK this week - with many flocking to supermarkets to stock up on food and drinks.

We've put together a round-up of some of the best cans of gin and tonic on sale at the major chains.

Of course, always drink responsibly.

Gordon's Pink Gin and Tonic

Gordon's sell their ready-to-drink Pink Distilled Gin with tonic in a 250ml can.

The drinks giant recommends it is best served chilled, or in a glass with ice and plenty of juicy strawberries.

They can be bought in packs of four or ten from many of the major supermarkets - including Tesco, Morrisons and Asda.
