Ice Water

"Sometimes I get back from a run, home from work, or take too long of a shower and I just get thirsty. In a pinch, this is what I do to quench my thirst."

Questions & Replies

  1. I had no clue how to make this masterpiece of a drink this is the most wonderful thing I have ever tasted even though it tastes like air... OMG, my mom said pizza rolls are ready imma eat them with my ice water cya thanks!...
  2. Can this be frozen?
  3. Upon my first sip, I noticed my digestive track began to decompose rather instantly, is this supposed to happen?


  1. This was fairly bland as written but after adding a shot of scotch I decided it deserved 4 stars after all.
  2. This was delicious! Next time, I'm going to do Step 3 the day before!
  3. I appreciate your post, but must ask if you have a more "basic" recipe for a beginner... I tried this recipe but would up cutting my hand on the glass, setting my freezer on fire, and almost drowning myself on the couch. <br/>Thanks again for any help you can offer.
  4. I don't know if I did something wrong, but I thought I followed the recipe to a "T". It tasted really watery to me. I'll try again, though.
  5. Honestly, I have to say thanks. you saved my marriage and my life. I used to have no friends and a wife who thought that it would be better for me to make a self-stew, but with this recipe, she wanted me back. our yoga instructor, *read with disgust* DAVID, has been having some one-on-one lessons with wife, daughter, and one-year-old son. not to mention my sister. but after this recipe, everything changed. my wife was the one making the stews and I made David find a new career choice and a new one-on-one partner with a bit of physicality. Thank you Badgerden! with love, Ben, from Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Company.


  1. good
  2. Add the ice to the container along with the water! It'll vastly improve the texture.
