Drinks with green stuff floating in them ‘clearly flawed’

THERE is nothing to be gained by adding plant matter to a drink, it has been claimed.

As Britain begins to experience patches of sunlight, thousands frantically threw sliced vegetables and leaves into otherwise serviceable beverages.

Tom Booker, from Woking, said: “Making a glass of Pimm’s look like a primordial swamp does not make it more drinkable. On a practical level, it makes it much less drinkable.

“You’ve got to do it thought. It’s posh. I think it might even be the law.”

Tom’s girlfriend Carolyn Ryan added: “But you can’t be seen to swallow the floating stuff. You have to filter as you drink, using your teeth like a drain cover.”

The habit of putting foliage into drinks began in 1861, when some upper class people had a bet on what was the stupidest thing they could convince plebs was fancy.
