Growing up visiting my Nana and Grandad was always exciting as they owned a small Pear Orchard and I loved eating a thousand pears at a time. They were always so soft and squishy and tasted divine, nothing like the rock hard pears you get at the supermarket. My Nana would peal the skins off and cut off any bruised areas and I would just eat them until basically I was ready to pop. Since then I have adored Pear flavouring in everything especially Cider. In both pregnancies I experienced morning sickness and the only thing I could stomach was fresh mandarins or Wattie's pear with all that yummy juice.
I have never experienced Elderflower so was really unsure what to expect. Looking over the bottle I had a feeling of elegance and as soon as I opened the bottle I smelt Pears and my mouth was watering. The instructions were easy 1 part cordial to 10 parts water. As I was concerned the first time having it that it would be too weak we tried 9 parts water but really 10 works just fine. We made one glass and shared between us and since it disappeared before we really got a taste we made again this time using a soda stream bottle so it could last a night at least.
Pouring into glasses we all drank again. My concern at first was the colour seemed rather weak and as I tasted it I could get the faint taste of pear but I was unsure quite how I felt. But I have to admit we have now had it over the past four nights during dinner and the taste has definitely grown on us all. My girls love it and both finish rather quickly and go fill more up where as mine seems to last a little longer. Maybe because a little seems to go a long way with me and where as I am not a fast drinker anyway I find the little bit very refreshing.
Initially I was quite taken back by the price but when you consider how much we have drunken over the past four nights and how much we have left it is really well priced. A little goes a long way and as we are usually water drinkers its nice to have something special during dinner. Even drinking it alone I find it goes down beautifully. I like you can make it as weak or strong as you like and the fact you could have in a hot drink is something I am curious about but have yet still to try. My youngest really only drinks water and occasionally milkshakes but the fact that she finishes a glass and asks for more says a lot. Something I would consider keeping in the fridge in the future.
