Does no one drink iced coffee?? Just brew it a little extra strong and throw it over ice. 

I make iced coffee all the time 👌 My go to is an aeropress recipe, 1:8 coffee grounds to water, pressed into a cold mason jar filled with ice (for a 1:16 ratio, were all the ice to melt)

 

The best thing, in addition to be cold during the long and hot summer, is that it doesn't get cold when I drink it too slowly. 😁

Is it the lactose or just dairy in general? Hub's is lactose intolerant and milk is especially hard on him but we recently found this and it tastes good and he had no bad reaction

unfortunately it's the protein in cow's milk for me, but still thank you very much for sharing :)

Can the bartender magically make me able to tolerate dairy so I can drink ice cold chocolate milk? 

Yumm, as a fellow sufferer of being unable to tolerate dairy, I'd say yes. Actually, I think I'm  going to  order a chocolate milkshake.  All the chocolaty, dairy deliciousness

Can I have a rakia neat and a glass of ice on the side?  And maybe a pitcher of water so cold it might freeze in the pitcher if it stops moving?

That is a sad thing. They're streaming on Amazon Prime Video, if you want to join in.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

Jumping in here slightly late, despite getting my challenge up as soon as the forums were up. :)

 

I will have a glass of water, because I'm trying to drink lots more water this challenge.  Hopefully I can get not being dehydrated to stick for real, this time.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

That...complicates matters as I've kicked Amazon Prime to the curb in our last round of Cut All The Non-Essential Expenses. Buut, I think I can get creative and figure something out.

 

Edit: Oh, $2.99 to rent? Psh, no prob. That's literally $0.99 more than it cost me to rent Super Nintendo games when I was a kid.

Cheetah saunters in and sits quietly in a chair.  He takes out a thick book and asks the bartender for a drink that will pair well with western moral philosophy.  Something spicy and nutty, perhaps.

*furtively darts to a secluded corner* I will take something extremely delicious, but horribly alcoholic. If it contains absinthe, all the better. I'm in a mood lately. *pops some cash into the electronic table jukebox and plays something folky, angry, but energetic. Something good for running like a wild thing*

Hey barkeep? Can I get a dragon drink? Please?

 

I just dropped half of mine, and I am way sad about it. Like, to the point of considering going out to get another one. ☹️ I shouldn't be that upset about it, but I am.

 

I have also learned that I need to take a second trip for the drink(s) when I'm bringing things up to the apartment. I don't think I've successfully managed to bring a drink or drinks up with me if I am carrying anything  else since we moved in! 🤣
