All I know is my historically authentic cherry bounce is a big hit at Christmas.

Well that sounds plum near nasty.

Cucumber Dill Fizz? That's what I tell reporters too.....

Whatever happened to just pouring liquor into a glass and drinking it?  Who wants to do all that damn work just to get drunk?
 
2014-07-03 09:32:40 AM  
I thought it was Madeira?

Fennel an watermelon shouldn't even be eaten on the same day, let alone in the same drink.

It's obviously for those pretentious hipsters to concoct a drink like this to show off to all their friends.  Beards.

A pickle brine spritzer sounds more like a July 5th drink.
 
2014-07-03 09:45:55 AM  
I'm pretty sure that on the fist Fourth of July, the founding father's were laying low, hoping not to be shot on site.

I am reminded of Hendrick's gin. It is delicious and best drunk straight up or with a bit of ice for summer coolness.

Got two types of mint in my patio garden, so I'm forced to experiment to find which one makes the best julep. sigh. Work, work, work.
 
2014-07-03 09:46:53 AM  
Did they get pickled?
 
2014-07-03 09:48:58 AM  
It's early. Bleary eyes read it as cucumber dildo jizz.

It's going to be one of those days.

If you want to make it a "Screaming Viking" you need to first bruise the cucumber.

Water all damned day until I get home.
Then I drink.

That reads like ye old euphemism that our Founding Fathers chugged each other.

If you can't work drunk, your job is unnecessary during a holiday.

Sounds like an insult: "Nice one, dill fizz."
 
2014-07-03 10:03:43 AM  
Um...I really thought that said something different.
 
2014-07-03 10:07:34 AM  
I always prefer a cilantro-mint-midori and cream.  I call it an Irish Spring.

YES, I believe you, but I feel I must make at least two of each to be absolutely sure. And, of course, there's the plain bourbon-and-branch as a control group. And the first shots of the many different whiskeys to establish quality. Gonna be a busy day.

So not your favorite drink then?  You were not entirely clear on that.

Subby has never had a Hendricks gin and tonic with a few slices of cucumber, it's perfect summer drank.

That kind of drink just ain't for me.
Won't go for a cucumber dill fizz, honey,

Science_Guy_3.14159: I thought it was Madeira?


And rum. Lots of rum.

Not sure about he continental congress in 1776, but I know the delegates to the constitutional convention were probably drunk for most of the proceedings. There are records of their alcohol orders, and damn. Those dudes could put it down.

Nope, hurricane.. fireworks are cancelled, you'll just have to get the kids to rub their eyes really hard while you wave a flash light at them

Last 4th of July for a party I had 3 drinks in mason jars: Hawaiin Sea Breeze, Blue Bleach Blonde, and Mojito. All 24 jars were emptied.

True story. I went into a bar near the bus station while I was waiting for the bus, ordered a Jack Daniels on the rocks.
Bartender grunts "We don't sell no fancy drinks in here." So I had what he claimed was bourbon and lost half of the enamel from my teeth. So be nice to Skyd1v; he prolly has a huge dentist bill.

Since it is the 4th, and a lot of Farkers like to play with fire and fireworks, have a Prairie Fire (or one of its variants);

1 shot of tequila
1 shot of Tabasco (or hotter sauce to taste)
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

garnish with the American flag and enjoy the internal fireworks for the rest of the evening...

some of the other variants

Prairie Fire, Original Prairie Fire
1 part whiskey
4 drops of hot sauce (for those who are weenies!)

Joe's Jolokia Extract Ring of Fire
1 part sake
a few drops of Jolokia Extract

Stout Prairie Fire
0.5 to 1 part Tabasco sauce
1 part Everclear (as if the Everclear didn't burn enough!)

Canadian Prairie Fire
0.5 to 1 part Tabasco sauce
1 part Yukon Jack

Caribbean Prairie Fire
0.5 to 1 part Tabasco sauce
1 part 151 rum
