My dive bar isn’t a classy place far from it, but the booze is cheap and there is a certain atmosphere that I enjoy when I’m there. There are times when I order a Henry’s Hard Soda or a Barefoot Spritzer and I will ask for a glass of ice.
I’ve always wanted to be sitting in a upscale bar and hear someone order a drink on the rocks.
I hear “you want a glass with ice?”
“Yes Please.” And it makes the booze go down quicker and smoother. I have switched back to my old stand-by drink Malibu Rum and pineapple juice. The ice makes it taste so good, refreshing and it goes down quickly. I also love drinking Coconut Mules that’s loaded with tons of ice in the brass mug and its so cold and delicious.
I like sitting on the bar stool with my drink full of ice and a straw so I can nervously stir my drink while waiting on my friends.
