What do we think about these dickheads then?


#2

“I like gin and that is a personality trait” is the absolute fucking pits and it is ludicrously prevalent.


#3

It’s really put me off gin, the association with the utter bellends and bars where all the staff wear braces or aprons or bollocks like that. You’re not in a speakeasy. Grow up


#4

It’s a shame but I fucking love gin* so fuck it.

*and it defines me


#5

Pretty irresponsible.


#6

what used to be a decent pub in the city centre here with a nice beer garden has recently rebranded and called itself ‘Peaky Blinders’ (yes, seriously) and the door staff now wear bowler hats. too embarrassing to ever set foot in there again.


#7

Is it gin o’clock yet???


#8

There’s a gin place opened up in Hove, and the owners / management built a faraday cage into it so that there’s no phone reception. I’m a big fan of gin, but it seems that overconsumption might turn you into a bellend.


#9

Gin is definitely a drink at home drink isn’t it.

Would never go out to town and order gin in a bar, unless maaaaybe at the theatre or in a wanky cocktail.

It’s a hot day, and you’re being a tourist and stopping off for a drink mid-afternoon because you’ve found a great place to drink which has an outdoor area. You don’t want a pint of beer, since there’s more sightseeing to be done later on and you don’t want all that liquid sloshing around you, so something short and refreshing. G&T in the sunshine would work perfectly in this situation.

Proper holiday drink for me. Sat at a seafront terrace/bar, generously poured measures into a massive glass, wee splash of fever tree :ok_hand:


#12

Can I interest you in an aperol spritz?


#13

Nothing should be naturally that colour, so I’ll pass thanks.


#14

bit colonial, isn’t it


#15

So you’ll be stopping drinking tea too then?


#16

if i’m out for a big night and i’m starting to struggle with pints after a few i’ll move onto gin and tonic. don’t really like many other spirits so gin would be my preferred choice.

i hate it when they ask me what kind of gin i want though. the cheapest please, obviously.


#17

obviously. I’ve never eaten a potato either


#18

quite like Gini the soft drink


#19

I do love a G&T on the right occasion, but what I hate it is the fetishization of the drink, with twee gin bars who serve it in china cups, and people who post things like ‘Uh-oh, bit of a GINCIDENT last night’. etc.

I made the best gin drink ever this Summer. Quartered strawberries left to soak in lemon juice and caster sugar. Add all of it to 1 litre of sloe gin, 1 litre of tonic water and stir in loads of crushed ice. Voila! A giant alcoholic slush puppy.
