...But, Then, I Drink


Crown Royal and Seagram's ginger ale was my drink of choice when I sat down to write this morning.

I got to thinking that I should pass on a tip for those who don't usually partake, but find themselves with a drink in their hand over the next couple of weeks.

In this case, it's ginger ale ice cubes with whiskey. I also like Coca-Cola ice cubes with rum.

What I like to do is fill a tall glass with ginger ale ice cubes and then pour the whiskey over them. It makes for a good sipping drink while I'm writing.

Ginger ale ice cubes seem to freeze faster than regular ice cubes. Looking at the two side-by-side you can see there's a difference in their consistency.


Cheers!

This is a unique but totally delicious way of sipping a drink with holiday friends or just relaxing alone. Love this idea and fully intend to institute in directly into my freezer. Thanks for a superb idea!

Sometimes it's the simplest things in life that turn a phrase or catch an edge, or make a drink just that much better...

don't they losee their fizz when they thaw? the CO2?
Or do you like the flat stuff?
i like coke that has gone flat and been wteed down.
Sometimes I'll add water to my coke cuz the straight stuff is just too swett and I want just a hint of coke.
Hey, Gonzo!

Proper holiday cheer to be sure!

When you freeze a "fizzy" carbonated drink it looses that bubbly appeal. How do you over over come the Flat Rum and Coke?
