Sourz - Cherry
Advantages: versatile, great for cocktails, lasts quite well
Disadvantages: none really for me
It was my sister who first introduced me to cherry flavoured Sourz and since then it is a drink that I will often have in at home for when we are going on a night out. There are lots of different flavours of sourz such as apple, raspberry, tropical, blackcurrant and pineapple but for the purpose of this review I am going to stick to cherry flavoured sourz as it is the one that I know best.
Cherry sourz is a sweet and sour spirit which has a 15% ABV and so it is a relatively strong spirit at that. It comes in a red coloured bottle which has the sourz name on and the product name but they do tend to colour coordinate their bottles to their flavours so I always know which sourz I am picking up really.
The actual sourz is a nice bright red colour and smells quite strongly of cherries and fruit when you sniff it. When you drink it as a shot I think it is quite a sour taste initially which does linger in your mouth but there is also the sweetness of the fruit used which becomes apparent too. It isn't a shot that will make me gag I have to say but it is quite a strong taste which I find all shots are anyway!
I think cherry sourz is quite a versatile product because you can use it as a shot drink before you are going out and obviously in this state the drink is at its most potent because you are drinking it neat. You can also mix this drink with lemonade to make a fizzy cherryade or with coke to make a cherry coke tasting drink and so there are good options for mixing too! My favourite way to use this product though is to make a cocktail called purple rain which is basically blue curacao and cherry sourz topped up with lemonade to make a purple coloured drink which tastes just like sweets and is most definitely my favourite drink to have when I am getting ready for a night out!
A 700ml bottle of cherry sourz costs £10.00 in Asda currently and £9.00 in Tesco. You can sometimes find them on offer for £8.00 a bottle which is a good price because I find a bottle really does last me a long time because I don't go out very often and so I won't use much of this as I do tend to only have a drink when I am going out or really in the mood for it which isn't that often to be honest.
I would definitely recommend the sourz product. They offer a good solution for mixing in to cocktails but also as a drink in which you can do shots with should you wish too.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: A good quality drink which is ideal for cocktails or shots
