If you hadn’t felt it before, May has confirmed that spring is well and truly here. Lighter days, temperatures into double figures and cherry blossom fluttering over London’s streets like confetti.

The month usually blesses us with two Bank Holidays every year, although the later one has been moved to give us a bumper four-day weekend for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

No need to pout though, the party vibes are getting underway well before then - and we’ve got the drinks deals and new launch news to help you celebrate.

Whether you’re firing up the Barbie on a sunny weekend, need libations for the Eurovision finale (May 14) or just fancy something tall, cold and refreshing for your evening tipple, we’ve spotted plenty of deals to help you wet your whistle in your monthly drinks roundup.

From celebratory bottles of bubbles, plentiful plonk, and classic cocktail spirits like gin, whisky and vodka, there are offers galore to pluck off the digital shelves and order for home delivery.

We’ve done the thirsty work and rounded them up for you below by category: beer, wine and spirits.

If you rather enjoy being on the wagon or just want to check out the low/no options in the name of moderate drinking, well, we’ve got you covered there too in our dedicated roundup.

For the purists, there’s also a classic cider, Urban Orchard. They come in packs of four and 12 and are set to make a refreshing change from your usual scrumpy.
