Kapiti Kitchen Cordial and a giveaway!

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!



Kapiti Kitchen cordials are available from various supermarkets and other distributors all around the country - see the website for details - and online at www.cordials.co.nz. Kapiti Kitchen is also on twitter - @KapitiKitchen.

I think I would choose lemon and lemon lime & bitters if I won. All the flavours look good, and tamarillo sounds interesting, but I do enjoy my lemon drinks. Might have to go investigating local shops to see if I can find some.

I think the lemon, and the lime, would both be great with sparkling water come summertime. Especially with a shot of gin added...

Becs said...

These products look fantastic, and agree with you about the packaging. Tamarillo and Mandarin and Honey would be my picks. Would love to see a rhubarb flavour developed as well, or rhubarb and raspberry...yum. I am very keen to try the tamarillo one as a porridge topping so may have to source some in Chch!

Emma Leddie said...

These look amazing! I would try lemon manuka honey and ginger & lemon lime and bitters if I won!

Miriam said...

What a lovely website Kapiti Kitchen has! I'm intrigued by the Tamarillo & would be keen to try Lime too - I often drink lime & soda, as it's such a refreshing drink.

What wonderful looking flavours! Manuka Honey, lemon and ginger sounds fantastic and just the thing at the moment - since I have a cold *sniff*
I suspect the Lime would be fabulous as well. I can imagine using them both in many things. They look like a fantastic product.

Lisa said...

P.s I just bought a couple in case I don't win - they look too good to miss out on :)

Vanille said...

Let's go cordial ! Just perfect for the coming days !

Deb said...

Ooh - just what I need to celebrate my birthday. These would be great to use in baking as well as straight up!! Would have to go for Tamarillo and Lemon, lime and bitters - get that one for my Mum. Love to share my spoils with her - she more than deserves it.
Have a good weekend all!

Kim said...

I would say, probably Lemon, Lime bitters for me, and Mandarin and Honey for the kids. It wasn't easy to make the choice however. Tamarillo sounds interesting.

bates said...

I love all things tamarillo so that would be my first choice, however they make my partner shudder so I'd pick Lemon, Manuka Honey and Ginger to keep him happy. Yum!

Mrs Cake's Mother said...

Mandarin and honey sounds good, however anything with ginger goes down well around here, and the tamarillo could be well worth a try. Could be a worthwhile addition to our Christmas dinner.

nicolewillrock said...

They all sound delish but if I had to choose one I think it would be the lemon, manuka honey and ginger :)

tortenz said...

Definitely Lime, with soda water

Julie said...

I feel a martini coming on!! Tamarillo or mandarin martini. They all sound delicious.

Mrs Cake's Mother said...

Due to your random counter NOT choosing me I have had to order two bottles of cordial direct. Arrived yesterday - at the lady-down-the-roads place - and can definitely vouch for the mandarin one.
