Russians & Ice in Their Drinks

Alina Simone explores why Russians dislike ice in their cold drinks. The commentators aren’t that impressed with the article, neither am I, but it’s a nice way to open up a post about ice. A lot of people don’t like ice or ice cream because it hurts their teeth. I actually freeze a lot of my drinks, just to the brink of becoming ice and enjoy them. This works especially well for ice tea, to which I also add a lot of ice, and sodas.

I tend to freeze bottles of water and enjoy them as they unfreeze. The same isn’t always true in restaurants, as a lot of people tend to sip their drinks and dislike how the ice dilutes them. To each his own. In Taiwan, people dislike cold water, which they usually drink warm or at room temperature.
