I prefer all of my drinks, outside of beer (wine) to have lots'a
ice-cubes. Pouring a cold Coke into ice filled glass doesn't water it
down enough to fret in the time it takes me to drink it...
Most definitely true about beer. It can be kept on ice to cool, but never put
ice cubes in it. I once learned something very useful from watching
television. Lou Grant told Mary Richards how to drink Scotch. His advice was
to get some goof Scotch and a nice glass. Put some ice in the glass and pour
in a good shot of Scotch. Swirl it around a bit and keep tasting it. When the
enough of the ice has melted to make it perfect, knock it back.
