There is an art to drinking through a straw. Whether it be a milkshake, a soft drink or a gorgeous cocktail.
No matter your preference, there is only one way to drink through a straw – and that is to lift the glass up from the table to your mouth – not your mouth down to the glass. The latter is such a lazy way of drinking and yet I see it all the time. And of course, never drink right to the end and make that dreadful slurping noise.
Make sure you teach your children the correct way to drink through a straw– they will thank you for it later in life – particularly when they are at a café with a work colleague.
