Belvoir cordials are the good stuff that stand head and shoulders above the high fructose corn syrup packed sh*t that passes for fizzy drinks these days. A simple fruit cordial added to cold and fizzy water throughly refreshes after exercise or on a hot day.
The Blackcurrent and Ginger cordials are my own favourites and are often sold out in Asda where racks and racks of sugary "Squashes" remain.
If you live in a soft water area the Sodastream is a great home device for making fizzy water from regular tap water. Available since the 70's and having passed thru a few reinventions this CO2 powered device saves the environment in two ways.
- Reusable 1 litre bottles, add the cordial to the drink not the bottle,
- Transportation costs. Water is dense, 1Kg per litre moving highland spring water from Scotland is expensive and ungreen and results in water costing 90p a litre
Often seen as a nostalgic memory from the last century the Sodastream and Belvoir cordials now provide a great modern alternative to the mass produced unhealthy rubbish that passes for fizzy drinks these days.
