Nope.  Stick around, make friends, learn lots.

I was.  ;>  When the time comes, I'd love to hear how the burst o'berry cordial
turns out.  It sounds delicious.  Do try pomegranate cordial.  It's _very_ good.

Try a cyser sometime.  That's a mead with a cider base instead of a water base.
They are _very_ good, and are drinkable sooner.  I noticed that several of your
cordial recipes included apple juice, so I thought that I'd suggest cysers.

Happy Holidays!
