Anybody adding water to my sofa is banned from the house.
I’m with you. If I live to be a hundred years old I’ll never understand the need to dump sweeteners in tea. Hot or cold.
They are a great couple (been a while though)
Back in the early 2000's they would actually hire our band to play their Summer House party ( we are in Northern Virginia) 3 different times- pay for hotel, gas, $$, and food.... very generous
They live in Lake View? Lake Side? ( incredible homes near Lake Erie- I forget the name...
Went to RRHOF twice!!
( actually, I'm from VA but went to college in Erie, PA)
...but a pack of salted peanuts in that coke? Yes, sir!
I don't drink fizzy drinks anymore, only drink diluted squash.
Here in the UK a "shandy" is half soda/half beer, usually something the equivalent of Mountain Dew (we call it lemonade) and an amber bitter. If we get a new barman, we initiate them by asking for a Guiness Shandy- if the beer is a draught version you can't get it in the same glass as the soda as it keeps foaming up like the magic porridge pot!
Unsweetened iced tea is my usual drink of choice...
I’ll occasionally put some cranberry or tart cherry juice in it, for a change of pace...maybe a slice of lime.
I don’t drink very many sodas—an occasional Dr Pepper or an orange Jarrito would be the go-to choices...I also like Topo Chico mineral water.
On the rare occasions that I drink a cola-type drink, then yes, I always water it down with tap water. It is not just the flavour I want to dilute, I've never been to fond of overly fizzy drinks, be it champagne, beer or soda.
I like my whiskey with a touch of still water added, and tend to add about as much cold water to my black coffee instead of the milk that some people add.
I drink my weizenbier straight.
I avoid anything carbonated like the plague.
To be fair, he did mention it was his bass player.
I don't drink Coke unless I dilute it with rum, about six parts coke to one part rum.
When my kids were very young, they loved to drink lemonade, but wary of it's sugar content I was not so keen. I found that I could dilute it with about four parts water before they could recognise that something was different. It still tasted very sweet and fizzy.
I have never heard of anybody purposely adding water to dilute a coke. It does not sound good.
It’s a hot day /AZ tradition called ICE! Plenty of ice when it’s 112 out and you’ve swing into the Circle K (another AZ tradition) for a 99-cent ThirstBuster. Ice. Ice ice baby!!!
I don’t like the loss of carbonation or the perceived level of watering down that occurs if you don’t chill Coke or other carbonated drinks thoroughly before pouring over ice, and I don’t like pouring so fast and vigorously that it sloshes and thus causes premature loss of carbonation. I tilt the glass slightly and pour so goes down the side of the glass smoothly and minimizes the loss of carbonation, and I don’t mind the little bit of watering down that happens as the ice melts. I pour beer the same way, I don’t need a head on that. No ice in beer or wine!
I also mix 1 or 2 per cent chocolate milk (or a small amount of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, if there’s no chocolate milk in the fridge) with 2 percent plain milk, adding ice afterwards to keep it chilled. Chocolate ice cream I like best combined with butter pecan flavor, a little more butter pecan than chocolate. I find chocolate milk and ice cream generally stronger chocolate flavored than I prefer.
I like adding ice to all my already chilled drinks, and don’t mind the minor dilution. No plain water added though.
I freely admit to being a Coke (and Pepsi) addict!
I dilute them both with ice.
I prefer lots of ice.
I've loved colas since I was a toddler.
Nashville has a restraining order against me (and my country songs).
Good friend and heck of a solid, blues bass player- his heroes are Bill Wyman, Chas Chandler, Duck Dunn, James Jamerson.
He plays a Fender P-bass and he played I bet 20 years BEFORE turning his Tone control up, from full OFF. Honest!
After about 10 years playing with him, one day ( at a gig ) he says
" I just discovered my Tone knob!"
He11 no, I don't even dilute liquor with water.
