Some time ago, I stopped drinking soda. Because I don’t drink alcohol, my beverage choices sometimes are limited.
At a typical party with an open bar, there are fruit juices, natural but loaded with sugar; soft drinks, artificial and loaded with sugar; diet soft drinks, waaay artificial and loaded with sweeteners that can pack on the weight instead of take it off; some form of blah fizzy water.
What I’d rather have is unsweetened ice tea. I don’t sweeten it, but one could and still wind up with a better choice than soda.
On an airplane, they don’t “serve” iced tea, but they obviously have both ice and tea.
Because I’ve actually been told that “we don’t have iced tea,” I’ve taken to asking for “a double bag hot tea and a big glass of ice.”
Checkmate for the less motivated flight attendants; the good ones just say: “Would you like me to bring it to you already done?”
Why, how kind. Yes thank you.
