Hosanna!

... to the son of David. (That's me by the way - my dad's called David.)

And yesterday (in case you didn't know) was Palm Sunday, when churches everywhere commemorate Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

There's another reason to sing Hosanna this year, and that's the fact that there's now just a week to go before the season of Lent ends and - with it - my rather poor attempt to give up alcohol for forty days. You can read how it started here. What I haven't told you is how the wagon wasn't so much fallen off as spectacularly crashed mid-season, only to be re-mounted with the aid of a rather nasty week-long sickness bug.

I've ha no excuses. I've been helped both by Sorelle who sent some rather pleasant low alcohol wine and by a case of Welch's excellent grape juice which now comes in three new varieties - Rosé Grape Light, Purple Grape Light and White Grape & Raspberry. They're all surprisingly refreshing, very tasty and have the added bonus of making you feel doubly virtuous as a glass of Welch’s counts towards one of your five a day.

You can either drink them neat (as I've been doing) or use them as a mixer. They're delicious over ice, mixed with sparkling water or simply straight out of the fridge and there are plenty of fun mocktail recipes on the Welch's Facebook page.

But don't take my word for it. Try some yourself. I've got a mixed case to give away to one lucky reader over on Twitter and the competition is running all week. All you have to do is find my Welch's tweet, give it a re-tweet and you'll be in it to win it. And while you're there, why not keep up to date with the latest Welch’s product information, recipe ideas and tips for keeping healthy by following @Welchs_UK?

Cheers!
