My FP does a great job breaking it up to a size suitable for my small mouth. (Never mind the cracks. I can get a doctors note saying I have a small mouth.) Now I will have to find a place in the freezer for the ice cube trays.
You know, the water doesn't have to be plain H2O. Try adding some lemon juice, lime juice, muddled berries, cucumber slices, fresh mint, fresh lemon balm, etc., to the water. Very refreshing.

My favorite drink is rose wine, although I enjoy many other liquid refreshments, depending on what else I'm having or doing. I usually like sweet drinks. Some other favorites are Riesling, Pinot Grigio, margarita on the rocks with salt, Cosmopolitan, rum and Coke with grenadine, Lemon Drop martini, and lemonade with a shot of lemon-flavored Stoli or Chambord. For festive occasions, I like Prosecco with Frangelico.

I also drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning and water with lemon for most of the rest of the day. Till it's five o'clock somewhere

If you ever see this wine you should try it:

Red Raspberry - Breitenbach Winery Store



Made in OH's Amish Country. Kinda dry, slightly sweet, but OhSoGood if you let a couple Hershey semi-sweet morsels get a bit melty on the tongue, the let the wine slip over the melted chocolate. It's one of those "skip the meal so we can get to dessert" wines!
