Wouldn't that depend on the weather?

(Hot weather a couple of cubes of ice, cold weather a splash of cool water)

That's a very American perspective isn't it?

1500 hrs here in the South-West of France right now, 39 C˚, NO wind, is that warm enough to ask for larger ice cubes ?

That's ice cube weather isn't it?

(I was referring to the ice being better comment ice quantity is one of the many UK/US differences)

Is it possible that folks in the UK never grew to like ice in their drinks because their freezers were manufactured by Lucas?

Do you think perhaps he should have limited his pursuits to those?
