Lime


This weeks addiction: Bickfords Lemon Lime and Bitters Cordial with Soda Water and lime slices

The Mr had something similar at a hotel and  bought everything home to recreate it.

When you don't drink alcohol its always nice to find drinks that aren't regular softdrink. We love bundaberg ginger beer (not me though) sparkling grape and apple drinks, strawberry blondes,  punch etc


I had many cupfuls while watching the election results on TV over the  weekend.


What do I dislike?

I really dislike it when you find a favourite thing that your kids also like.

A parents goal in life is to find food or drink that you enjoy that the children do not.

So suffice to say there is none left of that glass bottle of cordial.


I'll have to get more and hide it and only drink it late at night :) Closet drinker.


And this is why I spent all weekend singing

She put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up


Now I know why my mother loved black jelly beans and licorice growing up. She knew she would never have to share with us!! (and still won't.... *shudder* at the thought of black jelly beans)

Sounds delish! Whilst I hate sharing food period it sometimes amazes me what our kids taste buds decide what it yummy and yucky. I really don't think there is any rhyme or reason to it sometimes. I secretly love that my favourite fruits (mangoes and cherry's) Lincoln absolutely hates! Sweet as! More for me! lol

I agree with you on the black jelly beans-yuck! When we have dinner guest I always make strawberry lemonade or some version of that. Sometimes I throw in blueberries and mint or mix the lemonade with apricot nectar. My guest always love it and there is never a complaint about there not being any alchohol.

We buy the Bickfords lime cordial and mix it with mineral water (and sometimes add bitters), that is my treat drink. I think I am a little harsh but I tell the kids its an adult drink and they only get it occasionally. ;)

What a coincidence. Just tonight I purchased that very same cordial and lamented at having not bought lemonade to have with it. Water just doesn't cut it with this beverage.

You should try mojitos. Without the alcohol. :) I don't know if you can get mojito mix there, but if you can, it's really good. You mix the mojito mix with some sprite/7up/lemon lime soda, and add a sprig of mint. It's a mint/lime drink, and it's so yummy. I love it. This website has some mocktails you can make. http://www.jetsetcarina.com/2010/06/uptipsy-thursday-shirley-temple.html
