Great as a shot, or as a mixer.

Advantages: Tastes great, and can be used as a shot or a mixer.
Disadvantages: Is quite expensive, so only for special occasions, or as a treat.
I has heard of sourz, but had never actually tasted until fresher week at university. A lot of the nights out were sponsered by the sourz company, and so when we arrived we got a free shot, and then shots were £1 all night.
I can do shots, but I don't enjoy the taste of them, or that burning sensation as they go down your throat. The first flavour of sourz I had was the apple. And as a shot, this was great. It tasted like sour apple, and there was none of that burning that you normally get from high percentage drinks.
Since freshers week, apple sourz is what I always have as a shot. It tastes good, can be drunk quickly so you can get back to the dance floor, and is normally between £1 and £1.50, which is great value.
They're also great as a mixer. I think they're best with lemonade, as this preserves the flavour of the sourz, but gives you more an alcopop sort of drink and allows you to make the drink last for longer.
The bottles are expensive, but I have tries the cheaper knock off varieties, and they are no comparison. For the taste of the drink, I can definitely justify the price.
Summary: A really tasty drink, that is my staple shot when i'm out.
