Thinking mainly of iced tea and/or soda here, but I guess mixed drinks too. How much of the cup (approximately) do you typically fill with ice before pouring your beverage of choice?
I fill the glass almost to the top. I want my drinks as cold as possible and I drink them fast enough that it doesn't get watered down. I'm also an ice cruncher so I eat the ice when the drink is gone. Definitely bet I'm in the minority on this one.
For anything non-alcoholic, as much (crushed) ice as possible. Ice >>> whatever you're drinking.
depends what the air temp is and what the drink is.
I'm with the first two responses. One of my friends gives me crap about it. He's an engineer and has some thermodynamics explanation for why more ice doesn't really make your drink colder. Maybe it's true in theory but it's not how I roll.
If it is nonalcoholic drinks I don't use any. Unless it is freshly brewed sweet tea and had not been cooled of in the fridge yet. Ice just seems to get in the way.
out of a soda fountain, i don't use any

Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
Lots of ice, usually at least 3/4. Cubed > Crushed.
About 1/3 way in sodas. Get that hard shit out of my water, I ain't trying to crunch my thirst.
One of the worst wedding receptions I went to was out doors on a hot/humid July night. The bar was outside, the ice was melting and the liquor/mixors were warm. The ice melted instantaneously resulting in warm watery drinks.
Warm soda from a can, filled to the top with refrigerator cubes. Tap water, 5 or 6 cubes.
And the answer is 3/4th of a cup.
The girl I dated right out of college would always put 3 Cubes in any drink we had at the house that required ice. I eventually got so used to putting 3 cubes in I find myself going with that without realizing.
Pic Sigs are for losers.
it's already refrigerated. it's not like it's warm.
When making cocktails, you should put as much ice as possible in the glass. It actually causes the drink to become less watered down because it is so cold the ice melts slower. At least, that's how it was explained to me in this Esquire book I have.
I can't believe people put ice in their soda. WTF. Why would you intentionally try to dilute the taste?
Same. I want to get bang for my buck when I'm using the soda fountain. If I'm pouring myself a drink I use a little ice, but at restaurants I hate ice because I feel like it is displacing valuable soda space.
My dad is a big iced tea drinker and buys bagged ice to use at home because he doesn't like icemaker or ice cube tray ice.
I'm pretty picky about ice too, but when I'm at my apartment I just drink my iced tea and water straight out of the fridge from glass bottles with no ice.
People that put ice in their sodas probably also add milk to their coffee. One day I'll tell my grandkids about the hardships suffered during the Great Acid Dilution of 2012
I understand this rationale, but quality>>>quantity, and for me, the proper amount of ice improves quality exponentially. No tepid iced tea for me, please.
this is a FoxJr level thread
i can't drink milk unless it has ice in it. It is gross otherwise.
This is the one topic I actually want SodaTerpinski to weigh in on.
Finally a thread I can use my education in! Just wait until I get home and type out a full response.
Edit to say the number of people who don't realize heat only transfers in one direction is crazy
