Ice cubes in a glass

Answer:  WATERED DOWN

(Bummer, dude!  Watered down drinks suck!  In a lot of third world countries refrigeration is at a premium, so when you order a beer they serve it with ice cubes.  Ugh!  I hate that.  But, at least it’s not salty!  A sea-watered down drink has to be even worse.  Lol!

All familiar clue words today, though all of the jumbles came up as new.  Seems like we had “wisdom” not too long ago.  The answer letter layout was another fun jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The answer was pretty obvious, to me.  Not quite sure what that says about me.  Hmm.  The cartoon is super amusing.  I always appreciate Jeff’s attention to detail.  May all your well drinks be premium well!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The answer was pretty obvious to me, too. In fact, I wrote down the answer before even trying to unscramble any jumble.

    That’s why I don’t allow myself to look at the cartoon, until after unjumbling the clue words, Shimon. Most of them CAN be solved just by looking at the cartoon, but you miss out on half the fun! — YUR

    Indeed. Super obvious to me as well. Very easy solve overall today.

    WISDOM, and its close cousin, Unc Rave, DISOWN … both old friends of the Jumble Team!

    Was fairly easy. I just noticed that the Octopus bartender is spritzing a glass as he’s shaking the shaker. Didn’t notice it at first.
    I don’t like warm beer, so I’d go with ice cubes in it. I know a couple of people who put ice cubes in their glass of wine. Same reason.
