A barman in NZ tried that with me recently. I was astounded when he told me that a lot of people have ice in their cider!

Yeah, we get that all the time here in Sydney. Ice in a pint of cider means less room for cider! It's not a McDonalds!

I find that cucumber mostly tastes of water...and have not noticed any drastic tainting.

I like it though.

In any beer. Anyone trying to put ice in beer should be taken outside and executed.

On the rare occasion I order a soft drink from Maccas - I return it if I get ice. I want drink, not ice. And more often that not, the buggers, if left to their own devices will scoop it in with a JCB and when it melts you get watery coke. If I've chosen coke, I want coke.

Ice in a G&T is OK.

My GF can't drink anything with ice in it, as she has insanely sensitive teeth. The number of drinks we have to either return, or more often than not scoop the ice out of and leave on the bar, is huge.

You would think that Bourbon and coke with no ice would be hard to frack up, but then you would probably be wrong...

To be fair, those poor staff are probably on auto-pilot - if most people get ice, and ice is what they are trained on, it would be hard to get out of habit. A disconnect between what they heard and what they did.

When they scoop the ice, they measure it by the sound....as long as they can hear it they've got it.

Probably a stupid question but has she tried Sensodine toothpaste? It remedies tooth sensitivity after just a week or two of use.
