ONE of the most annoying parts of drinking outside in the summer is constantly having to fish insects out of your glass.

But one woman has shared a simple hack to try and prevent bugs from taking an unwanted swimming lesson in your glass of wine or chilled G&T.

"Tip of the Day – Summertime means outdoor dining – Use cupcake wrappers to keep the flies away from drinks at your next outdoor event," the woman wrote on Facebook.

"Cute and effective!"

With some scissors, carefully cut a small hole in the case that you can poke a straw through.

You can then drink your drink as normal without any unwanted visitors being sucked up your straw.

And given that cupcake cases cost just 70p for 100 from Asda, the hack is certainly not going to break the bank. 

"Love it – great idea," one person commented on the Facebook post.

While another added: "It is very useful as there are A LOT of flies this year!!"

It's also not the only way you can use cupcake liners for al fresco socialising this summer.
