This red cordial tale about two beetles is not about John and Paul, nor even Ringo or George. My beetles are not “The Beatles.”
How I love Google! Let me make that clear at the outset. In the last week of July 2013, a chance Facebook conversation between parents took me on a wild journey. It was about the best way to treat gastro with natural remedies, with mention made of raspberry red cordial.
That immediately sparked my memory – Robbie and I always took a small bottle of raspberry red cordial with us when we went to Bali – on the specific advice of our GP, Dr. Zeke Pervan. The first time was about twenty years ago and we did it every time we went. We were careful with our food and drink, we never suffered Bali Belly and always came home with the cordial bottle empty.
Sam (our cleaning lady) was there at the time of the Facebook discovery and we had a fun conversation about old cool drinks and cordials: we remembered “Passiona” when it was made by Cottee’s, recalled Weaver & Lock and talked about “Mexi” cool drinks which were home delivered. The name of who made the specific raspberry cordial escaped us.
Enter Google. Aha! Of course, it was Anchor! [Read more…] about Red Cordial – and a tale of two beetles.
