Giving up sobriety for Lent 2011: week 1

The Church of Greg's School of Experimental Theology has noted that followers of lesser faiths claim to get spiritual benefits from giving up things that their deity disapproves of, such as fun and tasty food. Greg disapproves of being a po-faced teetotal git, so as an experiment this year observant Greggists are giving up sobriety.

You aren't posting reviews of the devotional liquors?

No, I'm far too lazy to do that.

Too lazy? Too pissed perhaps.

PS your myrtle gin is horrid but cider brandy sounds lovely, did you make it?

No, I bought the cider brandy at Middle Farm.

Top tip: put a slug of cider brandy into your hot chocolate FOR GREAT AWESOMNESS.
