I always thought pre-warming cups was something posh people did.
I am not posh – I drink Coke Zero straight from the can, I use my hands to eat pizza and I have been known to serve butter straight from the container -however, I discovered if you want your hot chocolate really hot then you need to pre-warm your cups.
If you want your coffee to stay hot you should pre-warm your cups.
And if you’re one of those strange people who drinks warm cordial/squash/Ribena you should pre-warm your cups.
The moral to the story being, if you want your drink to stay hot longer pre-warm your cups.
If you’re a non-poshy’s who doesn’t know how to prewarm cups let me explain.
- Pour boiling water into your cup
- Wait one minute
- Pour the boiling water out of your cup
- Pour in your coffee/tea/chocolate/Ribena/Bovril
You now know how to do something posh. Congratulations!
