In brief: Maybe

Some patient's asthma is very sensitive to cold temperature, such as cold air. Rarely, drinking cold drinks or eating ice cream can even trigger asthma.
Most don't. If u wheeze or cough after drinking cold drink, then you better not do it.

I did have one patient, a child wheeze every time he drinks ice cold drinks or eats ice cream. It is rare, but it does happen.
