4 stars if patrick makes your drink
As of a 1956 Cold War act of Congress, the U.S's motto is In God We Trust, before that it was the more appropriate E Pluribus Unum. Throughout our history religious zealots have taken advantage of events like the War of 1812, the Civil War to inject religion. Before The War of 1812 only ab 17% of U.S. citizens attended church regularly. The gods were angry & punished us w/ that war. The gods were even angrier later & punished us w/ the Civil War & to appease one of them we put In God We Trust on our cash.
This isn't a "Christian Nation" and it never was; it just has a lot of christian citizens and some are very vocal, very annoying, and very wrong.
The orange juice & grapefruit juice you buy in the store is made from crushed & ground-up fruit, not squeezed. That's why it tastes so different from fresh-squeezed juice. It is also pretty bad in a cocktail & easily ruins a drink. You can pay a premium for store-bought juice that tastes fresh, or you can spend a few pennies on just enough to make your drinks. That's the point here. $4 for a carton of bad juice isn't saving you any money.
Also, the most common juices used are lemon & lime. You're much better off squeezing those. Jarred lemon and lime juices are even worse than & taste nothing like the real thing.
Fresh-tasting jar pineapple juice can be gotten for about $4-$5 a quart.
