    "My friend gave me cold drink in a glass but I didn't drink it at that time. I put it in the freezer so that it froze..."

    If you freeze a drink, it becomes a frozen drink, not a "cold drink ice cream".

    Wouldn't you say "My friend gave me a cold drink ...", bhaisahab?

    Yes, I would, ems. I missed that.

    Re: Cold drink Ice cream

    You could say an ice cold drink, which would be close to freezing in temperature but still liquid.

    Yes. Or ice-cold drink. We often create new adjectives from two words by hypenating them.

    Re: Cold drink Ice cream

    OK, so it should be "froze" we have to use the past form here.

    So please check this one.

    "I brought few eggs I put them in freezer so that they had frozen when I took them out".

    I've corrected the grammar above, particularly the use of articles, but please note that no one puts fresh eggs in the freezer!
