    I know right, it is horrible. Robinson's would be mortified.
    robinsons obviously love yours since you're using double the squash so they would sell twice as much! :lol:

    Also, me and puddles literally just went and made some squash in TSR Towers to take photos for her "water first makes the water look cool" idea.

    Surely if you left enough room at the top you could make it the same strength?
    I don't think it spreads as evenly through the drink if you put the squash in second. So, maybe, pockets of the drink have more flavour than others. :confused:

    Interesting, so the force of the large volume of water is useful for stirring the drink?

    Yes, I suppose my powerful kitchen tap has something to do with it. Whereas pouring the squash in second means that only gravity is dictating things.

    Jammy duel said in the tea thread that they do this in they're in a hurry.
    I said that I would hypothetically, not that I actually do
    And you neglected the more sophisticated people again >

    What option did i miss? Tell me and it's early enough that i can add it in.

    "I walk out to the blackberry plant, Collect 10 blackberries and then put in in a blender along with a pint of water and blast for 14.7 seconds"?

    I'm not sure.
    And can you go add a tea leaves no milk no sugar option to the tea one then, please?
    Or is it a bit late for that

    It's too late and the thread wasn't which way do you make tea, leaves v bag. It was a timing issue with the bags.

    Otherwise we'd up up with 32 options and a big mess.

    Depends what mood I'm in, if I've been drinking coke or something before juice I'll wash my glass and then put water before juice because I'm lazy otherwise it's juice then water.

    Squash then water!

    I admit I will do it the other way in a hurry but I don't know why because you then have to mix it as all you can taste is water first.

    I do love your poll threads on the food and drink forum motorbiker!

    Crazy, now i feel foolish for not having that as a 4th option on the poll.

    do you find it makes any difference to the resultant squash?

    I meant the juice unless companies can also be juicy? :lolwut:

    Not really as my other rarely buys juice. She is a more "Water is good for you" type of parent, so whenever we buy juice (usually in bulk) we could down it in a minute.

    Water first, then fill up with squash!!

    The squash makes nice patterns in the water!

    PROOF:

    But then you have to stir it!!! It doesn't mix properly that way

    Usually squash first and then water, much better that way.
    Except the tap at home sometimes gives us bitter tasting water at first so if I'm doing some of the more expensive squash like Ribena I'll put the water in first so I can check it for the bitter taste so I don't have to throw out the whole glass/bottle.

    If it's in a bottle I then put the lid on and shake, or in a glass I'll stir up with a straw.

    I usually add the squash after. If I put squash first then it's usually too much or too little. I prefer adding it after :yep:
