When I was younger I went to a local coffee shop with my parents and ordered a strawberry Italian soda, no ice. The man made my drink, handed it to me and then said you know people in Britain don’t serve their drinks with ice because they think it takes up room in their drink and they don’t think they get how much they pay for. I’ve always thought about that when I order my drinks.
My girlfriend, a friend of mine and I went to a little bar on the beach to get 3 sodas. We got 32oz and literally probably drank 12oz because the other 20oz were ice.
