I don't care if you're not American, you can still celebrate by making yourself what I declare to be the Official Drink of Summer: the Gin and Tonic. I have had a few of them myself in the course of my revelrie and naturally felt compelled to post to the BBS, following after my role model Noodles.

Take the poll, biiitchessss.

And don't worry, I will not do any moderating for the rest of the night. Don't want to be charged with an MWI. Har.

So, how are you celebrating? (Non-Yanks answer as you will). We had a barbecue, and many gin and tonics. Then we watched some fireworks, which my newly adopted from China baby sister looooooved. Ohh that face is too precious.

Gordons Dry London and Bombay Blue Sapphire are superior. I'm yet to try Tanquerey, but it'll probably be superior too.

And gin and tonic is disgusting, gin should be drunk over the rocks.

Public Holidays. I tend to find them less lame after a few shots. After all they're a good excuse. I'm not really into gin and tonic. But our infamous borovicka or Fernet Stock are yummy with tonic.

I don't really care much for this holiday, but I love the fireworks. I wish I could stock up on fireworks and use them all, but they're illegal here, so I'll just watch them. Luckily, I'm moving somewhere that hopefully allows fireworks. Also, this picture is for you:

Beefeater Gin was one of the things we borrowed from my parents' stash in our teenage years... and mostly just had it straight... and it was really, really gross.

More recently I drank Tom Collins' and got more drunk than I should have.

Cheers to you, Sarah, and any other celebrating Americans.

You drink your gin with tonic ; your opinion on the subject is completely and utterly invalid. Gin is only acceptable when drunk straight in shots with a beer chaser, over ice with an optional wedge of lime or lemon, mixed into martinis with DRY vermouth (and a twist or olive ; cocktail onions are an abomination), or mixed with that special lemonade that has added quinine.

In situations in which one has shitty terrible gin (ie. Vickers, Beefeater) and no bitter lemon drink, I will accept the mixing of gin with orange juice.

Okay, I've made it a point to avoid alcoholic drinks, so I don't have any idea what you guys are talking about. Besides, I'm only 15 so I can't drink yet.

As for Independence day, all I can say is God bless the USA and long live freedom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry, but I do not do that on purpose.

Something really annoys me about kids who are too young to drink, don't know how to illegally procure drink, sometimes even want to drink, yet claim they're "straightedge".

I mean, if you don't have a fucking choice, claiming you choose not to drink is kinda redundant.

I just saw some whack religious program on our Christian channel that was all "Spirituality and God are our best weapons in both war and peace! Hallelujah!".

Good luck, America.

The Gin and Tonic is a sacred summer staple! And it needs a nice hunk of LIME, no lemon. I drink my whiskey straight, occasionally with ginger beer or ginger ale. Is that man enough for you?

No, but it's tasteful enough for me. Scotch should be drunk neat (single malt), over ice (blended), or in boilermakers, depth charges or mixed with coke or ginger ale(bar). Bourbon should be drunk in boilermakers (turkey), over ice (jack), or with ginger ale (any other brand). Canadian Club and Jamesons should be drunk neat, straight out the bottle. Any other form of Irish or Canadian whiskey that I know of should be drunk with coke or ginger ale.

Now, if you wanna show off your manliness you're gonna have to move up to straight shots of grain alcohol, bacardi 151, green chartreuse, black absinthe, and lab-distilled ethenol. No chasers allowed.

Ah, okay, but where did it go after that? We made a empire and the Americans continued thier genocide of the natives

And the Australians invented the rotary washing line

There was the 1812 war after the separation, when we totally kicked the shit out of Washington DC. I think we actually burned the White House down, too.

Then they beat us at New Orleans or something. Ah, well.

They got pissed off 'cause we paid the indians in Mississipi to psych-out and we gave them guns. Plus we press-ganged a load of Americans into our navy. So instead of politely asking us not to they invaded Canada. Which then pummelled the shit out of them.

You can probably guess the rest.

Actually, America signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. Then the Brits decided not to take kindly to that and started the war. Actual independence came after that ass-whupping a few years later.

And considering I still don't know the words to God Save the Queen, I think it's pointless to even attempt to bring the War of 1812 into this.

"God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save The Queen.
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save The Queen.

O Lord our God, arise,
Scatter our enemies,
And make them fall;
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks;
On thee our hopes we fix:
God save us all.

Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour,
Long may she reign.
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save The Queen.

Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.

From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince, and friend,
God save the Queen!"

I had a heck of a day. My friends and I went to Indianapolis in the morning(from Iowa) and bought some fireworks and went to my friend, Fred's lake house. We had a grand party there.

I started drinking at roughly four, when I attended a counter Fourth of July rally at Unio Square (they have rallies every day, but this one was especially big). Later durring the night, I went to a Beer B-Q at the river and watched fireworks, where I proceeded to consume a large amount of Vodka Tonic - Gin is not as good, but yes, Hendrix's is by far the best.

I burned a few flags that night. Did any of you?

Vodka and tonic is an abomination. The only acceptable mixer for vodka is 2 shots vodka, one shot lime cordial, splash of Angastora Bitters and top up with lemonade. If you don't have this, vodka should be drunk in boilermakers or over ice. No matter how cheap and shitty it is, no other mixers are acceptable (including vodka martinis ; they are the devil).
