Chilled water is not recommended to take right after talking for a long time or singing as that will totally damage your vocal cords.

Also, if you have eaten a lot of oily food, it is not advised to drink chilled water because it will make the oil cling and harden onto your vocal cords. That will affect the quality of your voice.

Yes, drinking chilled water can produce harsh effects on your voice. It is however important to keep yourself well-hydrated by consuming at least 8 to 10 glasses of water everyday. Fresh fruit juices and tea are also considered healthy options for providing nourishment to your body. Dairy consumption or drinking milk is however discouraged as it triggers excessive mucus production which can be harmful to the vocal cords as it produces thick phlegm that can affect your vocal quality. Drinking warm water is advised to keep your vocal folds well-lubricated and moist especially when you happen to be in a profession that involves using your voice all the time. Hot water is however not advised because it can obviously scald you and cause inflammation on your vocal cords. This goes the same with drinking chilled water because it constricts the blood vessels which tend to dry up the throat and vocal cords producing a crackly and unpleasant voice. This can also harm your vocal cords and trigger a painful or stinging sensation on the throat felt when swallowing or speaking.

Yes, hot water with lemon and syrup are very good for the voice, especially if you drink it as soon as you wake up.
