Frosty Jacks is basically alcoholic pish in a bottle. I may try and save enough for some Merrydown

I bought it some corner shop, I only got it because it was like £2 for a bottle and I was doing the fest on a budget.

It was awwwful. This was 2005 mind, so I would have been 18 and no real "taste" in alcohol yet. And I still couldn't finish the bottle and spent the festival getting high instead.

i vaguely remember when i was 15 drinking a whole bottle of frosty jacks and then spewing it all up again, vile stuff. i suppose it could be useful as some kind of bulking filler if you only had a couple of nice bottles but still wanted to get blitzed.

So long as there's Cider there to help me keep my buzz while in the arena, I'm happy.

The real selection will be back at camp. Looking forward to getting some of that Citrus Cider and that Strange Fruit Strongbow again.

White Lightning was the 8.4% stuff they used to sell in Kwik Save.

49p for a three litre bottle. Well cheaper than it says in this Wiki article which is probably London prices. :lol:

Glad I never paid extra to go to the VIP bar. Not much in the way of rare ales and most of the ciders are flavoured crap. In fact most of them you would find in 'Spoons.

"A blend of Jägermeister with passion fruit syrup, sparkling grapefruit and garnished with a slice of blood orange will be served at Jägermeister stage bar & in the Serpents Lair VIP bar!!"
