We've squeezed lemons and blended zesty citrus to create a premium, natural lemonade soda syrup. We add a touch of natural sweetener which means less sugar, fewer calories and a clean, dry finish. Our classic lemonade will become a family favourite which the children will love. Perfect as a drinks mixer for the adults too.
My daughter and I were doing a very hot, very dusty cleanup of a garage and the tropical heat of the afternoon did not help. We had intended to try the lemonade when we got back to her place as she has a SodaStream, but the need for a cold drink was urgent and we had left the syrup in the fridge - so why not try it with ordinary tap water? To say that this was a good decision would be an understatement. It was much more than that; it was awesome! We both took a long draught from our glasses then simultaneously said Wow!
It not only quenched our thirst, it also energised us for our return to work with a citrus burst that struck just the right balance between sweet and sour. The acidity was not too strong- in fact, we went on to pour a second glass apiece as it was so nice. It does contain some sugar, but nowhere near the amount you would get in a regular syrup, and the lack of sugar was impossible to spot. We would not have been aware that it was a lower calorie version if we had not read the label.
When we returned to my daughter's house, we asked the children to sample it. This time, however, we used the SodaStream to make a fizzy drink. The adults tried it too in case there was any noticeable difference between the still and the fizzy versions, but we thought it was equally successful both ways. The children, who tried only the fizzy mix, both loved it and would have had more if we had let them.
We liked the way the sweetness and lemon strength could be adjusted for individual preferences. Mr Eight wanted his a little stronger but Miss Six said hers was too sweet and she wanted more water! We had mixed the drink in a jug so they had both been given the same proportions to start with. This is something you cannot do with premixed drinks, so this is a real point in favour for using a syrup and mixing your own.
The price is excellent - the bottle makes 25 x 200 ml drinks so that works out at under 24c per drink (plus the cost of the added soda, of course). which is the equivalent of more than three 1.5 litre bottles of lemonade. Given that this product is better for you as it contains real fruit as well as being lower in sugar, it has to be the better buy. Both my daughter and I agree that this is one product we will be buying again.
