Ongoing argument, name for cordial?!

Question: Ongoing argument, name for cordial!?
Ok i know it isnt the biggest thing in the world but i drink orange or blackcurrant cordial!. its the stuff you either add to water or add water to, to dilute it!. Now i call it cordial or squash, my girlfriend calls it juice!. what do you call it!? who do you agree with!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is, as you say, cordial or squash!. A cordial is light beverage made with the juice of fruits or flowers and preserved with sugars to form a syrup which needs to be diluted with water, squash is the same thing but more of an advertising term to distinguish the drink from juice!.
Juice is the whole liquid from pulverised fruit with little or no water added and the consumer does not need to add the water which they would with cordial!. So your girlfriend is wrong!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

its deffinatnly not juice, juice comes from sqeezed fruit and is form to make a drink pasically from just fruit, squash is a drink with fruit extracts and various other ingrediants that you add to water to flavour it!.
therefore you win your girlfriend should go back to school :-PWww@FoodAQ@Com

cordial or squash is the liquid you have to add water to!. it contains little or no real fruit!.

juice refers to the pure liquid extracted / squeezed / blended straight from a fruit!.

so, you're right and im afraid your girlfriend is wrong!. as you say, its no biggy though!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I honestly call it juice, but it is cordial or squash, I only call it juice because my family always have, or it could be linked to your roots, up north most people call it juice!.
Like you said it does not really matter, I am with you both on this one ;-)Www@FoodAQ@Com

Deffo agree with you! cordial or squash, I call the stuff you don't dilute juice!.

Perhaps you would be so kind as to put an answer to my question!?


It's cordial or squash which you dilute with water!. If it was juice, it would be from the relevant fruit, as in orange juice, and would be made either from concentrate or freshly squeezed!.


you, juice is the stuff in cartons, namely orange, apple, pomethingy and cranberry!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is definately not juice if you have to dilute it, your girlfriend is wrong WRONG WRONG!!!! its cordial if your posh, or squash if your not!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I call it Juice - It must be a girl thing!

Although so as not to confuse my husband, if we have fresh OJ in the fridge I do call it cordial!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I agree with you, theres no juice in it, juice is squeezed juice!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
