An American woman has detailed the moment her British flatmate was left in stitches after seeing her try squash twice without adding the water needed to it.
Rebecca Frailey, 19, from Utah, moved to Birkenhead, Wirral, as part of her work with her church four weeks ago.
The Mormon missionary had been enjoying the British heatwave when she decided to try orange and pineapple squash - but was left shocked by the horrid taste.
However, her British flatmate couldn't help but laugh at Rebecca's antics after realising the American didn't add water to her drink.
'My flatmate was laughing at me because I didn't realise you had to put water in it - it is just not a thing in America,' Rebecca told The Liverpool Echo.

'I just thought we had this really weird drink. I had the orange and pineapple squash and I was just drinking it straight from the bottle.'
The astonished American admitted: 'It happened to me twice and I had to spit it out.'
Rebecca, who is a religious volunteer for the Church of Latter Day Saints, has committed to helping her church in a two-year mission away from her home.

She started her trip in Wigan before moving to Birkenhead, where she praises the 'strong sense of community'.
However, she has suffered other culture shocks, including the 'heavier' Covid restrictions compared to her state and using Celsius instead of Fahrenheit.
The 19-year-old will be working for her religious organisation around the North West for the next 18 months.
