In Thailand you will see a lot of small street stores selling colourful looking drinks in large glass 'vats'. When you buy a drink the store keeper will scoop out a glass of the liquid and put it into a plastic bag with ice, sealing it with a rubber band to make it water tight.

To drink it, you put a straw in through the opening. For sweet drinks it's common to see treats added, for example tapioca gummy balls (in the style of Taiwanese 'Bubble Tea'), or like this one, sticky rice balls in iced milk coffee. If you can obtain large straws they are better for this drink, as the sticky rice balls are normally sucked through the straw.
