In Malaysia ice is 'ais', in Indonesia it is 'es'

Why not "teh es"? I think the modifier comes after the noun.

When it comes to iced drinks, we usually use 'es' in front of the name of the drink, like es jeruk, es kopi, es cendol, etc. But, in certain regions in Indonesia (I think in some parts of Sumatra or Kalimantan), people say 'teh es' rather than 'es teh'.

Is it technically still grammatically correct to have 'es' in front of the drink, or is it just common enough to be accepted?
