Bring me 2 of my favourite for me and my friend!

For those of us who drink alcohol there's always this one beer, liquor or cocktail which we favour over every other hard drink on this planet. For me that has always been the pilsner brewed in my hometown. That reminds me, I really should get another crate soon...

It's really simple this week. Sit down, become sober and pixel your favourite alcoholic drink.

Canvas Size - Exactly. 100x200 (can be rotated)
Colors - Max. 16.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - No.

What looks like glass, is freezing cold and sank the Titanic? Ice!

If you are able to solve this riddle, congrats! You are as smart as a 4th grader.
I bet, however, that no 4th grader could pixel a piece like I want from you this week.

No huge restriction, just depict ice. A material study, an ice monster or even a fine tumbler of whiskey on the rocks. It's up to you.

Canvas Size - Max. 350x350
Colors - Max. 32.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.
