Today an exciting package arrived in the Cake household:
Samples of these delicious cordials from Kapiti Kitchen! How awesome is that? These are made on the Kapiti Coast (yeah, you probably guessed that from the name) from natural ingredients. Natural and delicious ingredients, like lemon, lime, mandarin and ginger.
The lovely Sue, who started Kapiti Kitchen (after her cordials were a huge hit at the local school fair), sent these to me. Thanks Sue! I think they look really cool - I love the labels.
Look at all the zesty goodness in that bottle. I think this is asking to be put into cupcakes. I might be making cupcakes very soon. ;-)
We tried the lemon and ginger flavour and the mandarin and honey flavour this evening and they were yummy - went down especially well after a hard gym session! I especially liked the lemon and ginger - a very nicely balanced drink, not too strong in either direction if that makes sense, but it still had some good tang going on.
You can add cold water, soda water or hot water, depending on what you're after - each of these little bottles makes up to 2 litres (depending how sweet your tooth is - my post workout sweet tooth probably won't let it stretch quite so far though!). Tonight we made them up cold but I'm especially keen to try a hot lemon, honey and ginger - and I think the ginger one will be great with soda water (Sue told me that's one of her favourites).
If you'd like to win two large (750ml) bottles of this delicious cordial couriered to your doorstep, anywhere in New Zealand, check out the website and tell me via comment which flavours you'll choose if you win. You can double your chances by re-tweeting this post on Twitter - just make sure you include @MrsCakeNZ in the tweet so I see it! Entries close next Wednesday night at 7pm.
Also, if you have a cafe and think this might be a good product for you, please email Sue - she'd love to hear from you!
