Question:

If I said the blessing of Shehakol in the morning in the office and didn’t leave the office, do I need to say another beracha if I am drinking another drink, not water, or eating ice cream?

Answer:

If you weren’t planning on drinking more, like when you take a coffee break, and then you get back to your work, then you make another bracha on the next drink. The reason is because you were “masiach daas”, you finished drinking for now, and therefore the next drink is not attached to the first one. However if you plan on drinking every few minutes then it would be considered one long drink.
