    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    I never heard of drinking from a bottle as being impolite unless you got a full blown bottle of tequila or anything not meant to be drunk by yourself lol (specially if they give you a bottle but no glass). I do agree in that drinking from a glass is the most comfortable thing.... I am pretty sure you can taste the cans when you drink from one lol.

    Then blow on it? Ice is good, but the problem is, it melts and adds extra water to the drink. -.- I'm thinking about fountain drinks when I say this though.

    It does look impolite, but oh well. Besides, putting drinks in cup gives it a better taste. Roawr.

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    I don't really have a preference, overall, but I always tell the waiters not to bring a glass for the beer...I enjoy it more from bottle...and it doesn't get warm either...other alcoholic stuff, I really like to use a straw, so that way I don't think the container actually matters...as for non-alcoholic stuff...well I'm really indifferent in that area, so...

    Well, what you said inside brackets is special case, meh. XD But in my country it is something considered quite impolite... Of course you can do it at home, with only families watching, but still we are advised not to do so. Such etiquette. ^^"

    You want me to blow it 'till I'm blue? Haha, yes, that is true, though. It destroys the taste in most drinks, iced tea especially for me, but when I drink soft drinks like Coca Cola or Sprite I tend to put ice since they can be too sweet. My mother taught me that. :|

    And yep, agree about the cup. XD

    I have nothing to say for alcoholic drinks. XD I see my parents drink it a bit once in a while, but they always use cups too. :3

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    I can never be bothered pouring into a glass, acup or a mug lol. And I don't drink from cans either, so its bottles for me by default.

    On another note, I don't drink alcohol and beer tastes like shit if I did! So its water and fruit juice for me. (On that last note, you left out an option for cartons.)

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    Interesting question which I have never been asked before, in real life or online XD For some reason, when I drink from a cup it tastes different :S Plastic bottles are okay, but as my parents seem to always say, drinking from them all the time isn't good for my health -sigh- Glass bottles? No. So that only leaves the last option: can. I don't drink beer or coke at all, probably once or twice within a year, but for some reason it feels nicer to the lips than anything else.

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    It doesn't normally make a difference for me from what I drink, but it always depends on the mood and situation. When I'm at some party with friends I normally drink beer from glass bottles or from cans. When I'm at hom with my family I drink from a glass cup. When I'm in a bar I normally drink from a bottle, but if it's something more like a restaraunt the give beer only in glass cups.

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    Beer doesn't taste like shit!

    Anyways, my position hasn't changed much since I last wrote here. drinking out of a can plainly sucks, it ruins the drink and frankly, it is a tad uncomfortable. Glass cup or bottle is definitely the way to go.

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    It bloody well does taste like shit! I guess its an 'acquired taste', which means that if you drink it often enough, you people convince yourself you like it lol. Wine sucks too!

    And you're right, cans are uncomfortable, I don't remember the last time I drank out of a can. I usually drink soy milk or orange juice out of cartons, other than that its glass and plastic bottles for me. Ginger beer, tonic water and lemonade FTW.

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    Beer is an acquired taste, which is a statement I never believed since I didn't drink til I was 19 and now there's nothing better than a cold beer during a hot summer's day.

    As for how I like my drink; in whatever I can put it in. When I go out I drink in glasses as that's how they serve it you. If I'm at home and having wine for example, I'm not going to wash a wine glass just so I could drink out of it. I'll use whatever I have.

    Well different strokes for different folks, I mean some boys don't even like strokes of the cane!

    And I still notice there's no option to vote for cardboard cartons in the poll, either the ones with a straw or the ones with a thingy on the top makin it a cardboard bottle.

    Re: How do you prefer your drinks?

    Well, you wouldn't regularly drink out of a carton lol. Anyways, I do like tetrapack. Back when I lived at the states I was unfortunately caught in the whole milk scam.... As we all know milk there is sold in gallon or litter plastic bottles and as a result milk goes bad in a week even in the fridge. This means that at most you can buy 1 gallon of milk at a time meaning that if you intend on having milk for breakfast regularly you need to go to the store at a bare minimum once a week. More so, milk is located at the farthest corner possible from the entrance of the supermarket so even though you want to buy "only" milk you end up getting a bunch of other stuff which you either remembered, want to try or simply got a craving for as you walked by(I had known that for years and yet I never walked out of that damn place with just milk lol)... If I could buy tetrapack I would be able to buy 20 liters of it at a time and go to buy it once a month lol. The sheer amount of gas that is spent every year to get just milk is probably quite remarkable to say the least. Someone should do a research on the environmental effects of taking that weekly trip to get milk that everyone in the US must have done 50 times a year lol.

    Actually, most of the things I drink are out of cartons (soy milk and fruit juice). Only the fizzy pop I drink comes out of glass and plastic bottles. And no, I can never be bothered to pour anything I drink into a cup or a drinking glass.
