    Squash first, then water. I know exactly when to stop adding squash/water as my preferred amounts line up to the patterns on my glasses plus I don't have to stir the mixture, the tap does that for me, win-win.

    I don't see why you'd do it any other way? It's like putting milk in your bowl first and then your cornflakes, madness

    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.
    Is TSR towers real? And if so do you have to be a mod to get in??
    But squash first then water its just easier

    I put in squash first so that the force of the tap water stirs up the drink, giving it an even flavour without the use of the middle man to stir (spoon)

    Makes sense! :yep:

    If you want to know how many TSRians put in their milk before their cereal then make a thread on it with a poll!

    I do both. Not at the same time, but sometimes I do squash first and others squash last

    Squash first, then water. Then you can see from how much squash you put in how much water is needed to make it at the strength you like

    I often sip a small amount of raw squash but have never heard of someone actually drinking it neat... :eek:

    Usually I put squash then water. If you do it the other way around, it's too watery and not strong enough

    I always put the water in the glass first then add the diluting juice.

    Definitely the squash first. It mixes better.

    Always squash first then water and ice otherwise a bit difficult to estimate how much squash I've poured into the glass.

    The only exception is when I'm making it with soda water, the it is soda water, ice and then squash which I pour from the side of the of the glass very slowly. Find that if it is done any other way the aeration isn't quite as strong.

    I always aim for a 1:4 ratio, except for if you get some of this "double concentrate" stuff - in the case of the latter, it's 1:9.

    Squash before water. It's much easier. Putting in squash after water would be difficult as I'd put too much water in and it becomes too diluted, meaning I'd have to tip some away. I find it easier to judge volume if the liquid is coloured.

    I'm not sure about my ratio but it depends on the squash.
    For orange it's about 1:5, but blackcurrant and apple is 1:4

    I think if I poured the water and the squash in simultaneously I'd end up in a fine squashy mess!

    A few days back I tried something new, decided to premix 50:50 squash and water then freeze it in ice trays.

    To serve get some soda water or lemonade (room temperature) and add 6-8 cubes into it. I think I finally found a drink that didn't bother me when the ice melted

    Squash first. Anyone who does otherwise is probably just hell bent on watching the world burn.
