Crime Scene Investigation:

Ever wondered what is the difference between seeing and observing, well you are about to find out. You can very well see this puzzle so just try to observe:

Two girls ate dinner together. They both ordered iced tea. One girl drank them very fast and had finished five in the time it took the other to drink just one. The girl who drank one died while the other survived. All of the drinks were poisoned. How did the girl who drank the most survive?

Caution: Mere stating that observe properly does not mean that there is hidden something. The answer is purely logical.
