With the dreary and cold winter months finally behind us, the over-21 crowd will likely be searching for refreshing, new alcoholic beverages to quell the quickly approaching summer heat.

Luckily, Aldi just dropped its new summer alcohol collection today, April 21, offering customers a fresh range of options for the warmest season of the year. These new beverages range from sweet, fruity wines to crisp ales and premixed cocktails.

In even better news, shoppers can score these seasonal beverages at Aldi's signature low prices. None of the items, not even the bigger cases of drinks, have a suggested retail price above $14.

While Aldi is adding nearly a dozen brand-new alcohol options to its shelves for summer, it is also bringing back other summer beverages it has offered on a seasonal basis in the past, including a sweet strawberry wine, bottled red sangria, and a creamy coconut wine.

But for shoppers who are solely looking for something new to sip this summer, here are the 11 new alcoholic beverages that just launched at Aldi.

 7 Grocery Chains With the Best Beer & Wine Selection

There's almost nothing better than fresh, cold watermelon on hot summer days, so why not infuse those nostalgic flavors into a sparkling cocktail? The eye-catching, pink Giambellino Watermelon Bellini features wine and watermelon juice to make a boozy, refreshing beverage. $5.99

Locken's Tropical Pineapple Kolsch

Don't worry–the one and only ale in this new collection doesn't stray too far from the summery flavors you can find throughout the rest of this list. Kolsch is a light, crisp, and somewhat fruity style of beer that originated in Germany. Locken's Tropical Pienapple Kolsch-style beer is a blonde ale that capitalizes on those fruity notes with a "juicy tropical aroma" and "underlying breadiness," making an ideal accompaniment for seafood. $7.99

Zarita Blueberry Margarita

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, Aldi is now stocking this convenient premixed beverage that will ensure you won't have to dig out your cocktail mixer or squeeze any limes in order to enjoy some good ol' margaritas. The deep blue Zarita Blueberry Margarita offers a new twist on the classic cocktail with sweet blueberry flavors and wine. This is one of the pricer options in Aldi's summer alcohol collection, but it certainly packs a punch with 13.9% alcohol by volume. $13.99

Don't Mind If I Do Sparkling Rosé

Who says you need to make your peace with consuming copious amounts of sugar in order to enjoy a refreshing summer drink? The light pink Don't Mind If I Do Sparkling Rosé has a bright fruit flavor and "refreshing red fruit finish," according to the retailer. But its biggest selling point may be the fact that it contains zero sugar and just 85 calories per five-ounce serving. The label recommends pairing this wine with fruit salad, grilled fish, and fresh bread with herbed cheese. $12.99

Zarita Cocktail Pouches

They're less than $2 apiece. $1.89 each
