Hummingbird nectar question

Hello,

I'm in Washington state, feeding hummingbirds for many years. I always prepare my own syrup. Recently I've bought the new feeder, and it came with two bottles of the red nectar, so I decided to try. The birds refuse to drink it! They try a little, then fly away.

I wonder - has anyone tried this red nectar? Do they actually drink it? Or maybe they are just spoiled here, because it's summer, there are still some flowers, plus there are other feeders around? Not sure what to do with this nectar - keep it or throw away.

Thank you.
