When I'm eating at a restaurant, I sometimes splurge my money on a strawberry lemonade beverage. Most places charge $3 to $5 which is pretty pricey. To get my money's worth, I always tell the waiter easy on the ice. If I don't mention easy on the ice, they'll fill the cup completely with ice so, by the time I take a couple sips I would already have finished my drink. Then, I would have to wait for a refill. Sometimes the refill does not come immediately and I would be thirsty half way through eating my meal or keep having to keep getting a refill because of the ice the drink will get too diluted where you cannot even taste the strawberry lemonade.
If I am ordering food to-go, I usually ask for no ice because I plan on eating at home where I have ice at home already. Or, I will ask for no ice but request ice on the side so the drink doesn't get diluted by the time you get home.
