    drinks without ice

    Hi,

    When you order something in a restaurant for example a drink but you dont want ice in it, is there a term that you would use to mean its natural temperature, without using the term "no ice, please"?? like water, juice...
    Thanks loads.

    Re: drinks without ice

    Hello Carla,

    You could specify the temperature, e.g. "at room temperature, please"; but it would be an unusual thing to do. In ordinary usage, you would simply add "no ice" after the name of the drink.

    Best wishes,

    MrP
