No Ice, Two Bucks

You know, if somebody charged me two dollars for not putting ice in my bourbon I don't think I'd be able to manage the level of restraint this gentleman seemed to show. Of course, he turned it into a free drink, which is probably a valuable lesson in the importance of keeping calm.

First of all, fuck you and your anti-ice agenda. Second of all … I forgot. Rage blackout.

Not all that glitters is cold.

And jesus, $13 for one drink? I'm never leaving home again.

I like to bring my own ice because nobody else knows how to make it.

@C_Webb This pocket is full of ice. This pocket is full of barbecue sauce. This pocket is full of himalayan salt. This pocket is full of pre-muddled mint. This pocket is full of fresh mint, and also a mini-muddler, in case the other mint gets soggy.

@deepomega You're like FEMA for cocktails.

Who drinks an Old Fashioned without ice?

@Clarence Rosario — Gak. If you're sipping one, doesn't it turn into tepid fruit mush?

@BadUncle The muddled fruit version is the inferior Old Fashioned, ice or no ice.

BadUncle (#153)

@whizz_dumb Maybe. But it is the *old fashioned* way of making one.

@whizz_dumb Admittedly, my view of its history precedes no further than my father, in the 60s. While he didn't muddle, he piled on the fruit.

Industry Pub in Pittsburgh – No ice, $2 extra. With ice, $2 extra. Want the price on the menu? Have to ask for "Just a shot." "That's how everybody does it!" –when you complain.
