    You might want to reconsider the shot – using a flag as a coaster disrespects the flag. Using stick flags in the drinks might be a happy medium. But the drink? No changes necessary!

      I agree with Megadeal. Please remove the drink from the flag.

    ‘It’s now crinkled up in the junk drawer’…this statement shows your utter disregard for proper flag etiquette. I’m the third generation of four to have served in the military, with a son and daughter-in-law currently serving in Afghanistan, and I find your casual treatment of the flag (even a tiny one) ignorant and maybe even pedantic. I’d like to ask you to please remove the picture with the flag. The beverage will still be a ‘fun summer drink’ without your casual mistreatment of the flag and what it represents. Would you treat a picture of a loved one in the same manner, i.e. putting the picture under a drink and then crumpling it up? Think of that flag as a representation of all the loved ones serving our country, and those that have died in that service. That is what I find disappointing in your presentation…you don’t understand what it represents.

    if the ‘flag’ doesn’t have the correct number of stars and stripes, is it still a flag? I work for a store that sells those flags for 50 cents apiece and almost none of them have the correct number of stars and stripes, which is half the reason they are so cheap…also, they’re made in china….

    How disrespectful can you be, using our Flag, a symbol of Freedom as a coaster. You shame all those that have fought and died for our Flag. Remove this post at once and apologize.

      She will not apologize to the likes of you. She does not have to. How rude and disrespectful of you to come on her site and tell her how she should use it. If you don’t like it, move the hell on. You people make me sick. She is using her freedom by posting this pic.

    Thank you for understanding. And as for disposing of flags, no matter the size, let a Boy Scouts or Young Marines group take care of them. And if you have the time, watch the ceremony that properly disposes of the flags. It will give you an understanding and appreciation of the depth of meaning behind the flag.

      Do you have a ‘ceremony’ to throw away U.S. flags on fireworks, paper plates, umbrellas for drinks, straws and other decorations for OUR Independence holiday?? Grow up!! Not everything is a political statement!

        ‘Not everything is a political statement’. Perhaps not. But by ‘growing up’, you mean ignoring four generations of tradition and service in my family, I cannot ‘grow up’. Rather, I honor the sacrifice of those in the name of the flag who allow you to treat it as a mere decoration. It’s not a ‘political statement’ per se. It’s honoring the history and traditions of our country. You can certainly choose not to abide by it, and that is your ‘freedom of choice’. But because people serve in the military, you are able to still have that freedom. Enjoy your Independence Day. And maybe take a trip to a National Cemetery on the fourth of July and see the headstones of those who have ensured you have that freedom. And in answer to your question, you could have a ceremony of your own, and burn those items when you’re done. Or not. Use your ‘adulthood’ as you see fit. For the record, nothing wrong with red, white, and blue plates, napkins, or other such accouterments …flag ones, however, are not appropriate. But go ahead, sweetheart, and eat off the flag. I’m grown up enough to know it’s not proper etiquette.

          You’re hysterical!!! Thanks for the laughs. BTW, no one is defending my freedom for me, I never asked them to go to other countries, who’ve done nothing to hurt us and kill innocent people in my name. No matter how many uneducated people join the military and kill innocents for the monetary gain of our government officials who could care less about any of them or us, I’ll still be free. Until our government decides to show their true colors, that is. Then we will have to defend OURSELVES to them, like we should have been able to on 9/11.

            Mylisa: What do you propose that those ‘uneducated’ people do? The military often provides a step forward, enabling people to go to college with funding earned from being in the military. Or learning skills to use in the private market place. It’s more than the often-touted but not fact-supported just ‘joining the military and killing innocents’. (FWIW, the number of people killed by my military family members is zero!!) (And FWIW, if you combined the number of college degrees the four people in my family have that were in the military, it would total over seven, including three post-graduate degrees.) Please abstain from spouting talking points that are vague and inaccurate. I’m not hoping to change your mind. But please stop the petty-sounding aloofness (‘hysterical’). Not hysterical, just someone who has been there, done that, while you have sat at home and only spouted vague deprecations at the tv or on internet pages with those who don’t agree with you. Bless you, child, for at least entertaining a dialogue. It is much appreciated. May your own ideologies allow you to live a happy life, which my family members and I and thousands of other service members have helped ensure you have that opportunity. And Racheal, thank you for allowing us your blog space to share our freedom of speech. THIS is what makes America great.

            “Swamp Willow” I have no interest in reading what you wrote or continuing this absurd ‘conversation’. A napkin or a coaster is not a real, American flag. End of story.

    Seriously, I am. certain you all are taking this ENTIRELY way too far. I am very patriotic and have family past and present in the military. This is in no way offensive to me. It’s a damn picture for goodness sake. Do you people have nothing better to do than criticize others hard work? Get a life. If you don’t like what you see then move along. You’re opinion is no longer wanted nor needed. Thanks and make it a great day!!!

    Hence the word freedom all of you are using. Do you even know what the word means???? She has FREEDOM to post this picture and any other picture she wants!!! How dare any of you judge someone! Shut the hell up! She does not HAVE to remove this post or apologize. She has done nothing wrong here. Shame on all if you for badgering her. She’s doing a wonderful job with this site and if you do not like or approve find the exit button.

    Hi Rachael,

    The drink looks so good! I’m going to try it and personally like the props. I think it is PERFECT for the holiday and I don’t think you are less patriotic because you used the flag. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    I know this reply is quite late, but it find this quite amusing how an awesome alcoholic beverage idea becomes a battle of will between the patrons of our beautiful country. No wonder we are always at war…we can’t even maintain peace within our own walls. I believe that there are much larger issues which take precedent over a “Disrespectful flag coaster”. On a more positive side note: Great blog babe! My friends and I are trying your drink this Saturday. :) and Best wishes on getting better in health!
