That's only happened to me once, down in Chermside Gilhoolies. I ordered two pints of cider & she half filled the first glass with ice & poured cider over the top. She seemed quite offended when I refused it before she'd even finished the pour. Talk about a profit maker $8.50 for a pint of Bulmers & the glass is 50% filled with ice. I can't see how it's legal to charge for a pint yet fill the glass with ice. Now if they served a quart jug of cider with a glasses of ice I'd have no problem at all.

I reckon you might have a point about the legality of the ice - consumer affairs might be interested.

Sorry Polly LOL!

One of my faves from the milk bar is a steak sandwich with beetroot and a fried egg. Delicious.

Wow now that is my heaven where is it? I will so have to try it in 78 days

My pet hate in supermarket :

1) offers no longer there

2) items moved to somewhere in to outer space and you spend 3 weeks trying to find everything.

3) SCREAMING kids ( I must admit mine have done this till we gagged them hehehe)

4) smelly of wee people. I mean come on peeps how hard is it to wash? hmmm I know its scary like but really I dont need to smell it on you and please please use a toilet next time not your trouser leg OK!

rant over hehehe

Its actually a world wide thing...

eg: Go to Spain and have a Tinto de Verano, Red wine served over ice, sometimes with a slice of lemon.

Pretty Common in Miami, USA too...

Not as common in the colder countries though...

S
From a French Wine Guide....
It is sometimes recommended to slightly chill light red wine : Beaujolais and Loire Valley red wines such as Chinon, Bourgueil and red Sancerre.

Two pints of Cider and a glass of ice, is a common request in pubs here. Quite right to refuse it.
