Non-alcoholic Cordials: A Refreshing Alternative to Sugary Soft Drinks
Cordials, also known as fruit syrups, squashes, or diluting juices, are concentrated fruit-flavoured beverages that are enjoyed all over the world. They are a popular alternative to sugary soft drinks and provide a tasty and refreshing way to stay hydrated. Since they are served diluted this will reduce the sugar content per glass much further than in most premade soft drinks. In this article, we will take a closer look at what cordials are, how they are made, and how they are best enjoyed.
What are Cordials?
Cordials are sweetened, fruity drinks that are made by mixing fruit juice with sugar and water. They are usually sold in concentrated form and can be diluted with water or sparkling water to create a refreshing beverage. Cordials come in a wide range of flavours, including classic fruit flavours such as lemon, raspberry, and blackcurrant, as well as more exotic flavours like elderflower, rhubarb and nettle.
Cordials have been enjoyed for generations and are a popular drink in many countries around the world. In the UK, for example, they have been a staple drink for generations, and are often enjoyed on their own, or mixed with soda water or sparkling water to create a refreshing beverage.
How are Cordials Made?
The process of making cordials is relatively simple and involves combining fruit juice, sugar, and water. The fruit juice is usually made by juicing fresh fruits but can also be made using concentrated fruit juice. The sugar is added to sweeten the drink, and the water is used to dilute the mixture to the desired concentration.
Once the ingredients have been combined, the mixture is heated until the sugar has dissolved, and then allowed to cool. The resulting liquid is then bottled and sold as a concentrated cordial. To enjoy the cordial, it is simply mixed with water, tonic, or sparkling water to taste.
How are Cordials Best Enjoyed?
Cordials are a versatile drink that can be enjoyed in many different ways. They can be enjoyed on their own, mixed with soda water or sparkling water to create a refreshing beverage, or used as a base for cocktails and mocktails.
For a classic cordial experience, simply mix the cordial with soda water or sparkling water to taste. This will create a delicious and refreshing drink that is perfect for sipping on a hot day, or as a tasty alternative to sugary soft drinks.
Cordials can also be used as a base for cocktails and mocktails. For a simple and delicious cocktail, mix the cordial with a spirit of your choice, such as gin, vodka, or rum, and top up with soda water or sparkling water. For a mocktail, simply mix the cordial with tonic water or sparkling water, and garnish with fresh fruit or herbs. So next time you're looking for a refreshing and fruity drink, reach for a bottle of cordial and enjoy a delicious and refreshing treat.
In conclusion, cordials offer a healthier alternative to sugary soft drinks and are a great way to stay hydrated while enjoying a sweet and fruity beverage. They are easy to make and can be enjoyed in many different ways. So why not give them a try and discover a delicious new way to stay hydrated.Read less
