Let's say the context is a guy and and girl at a restaurant. Then, they had an argument. Then, the girl picked up a glass of beverage (full) and then made one jerking movement of the glass at the guy, causing the content of the glass to leave the glass and hit the guy in the face. The glass itself never left the girl's hand. I came up with two possible sentences to describe the situation:
- She splashed the drink at him.
- She threw the drink at him.
I have a feeling that "throw" is not the correct verb to use, since there was no overhead movement of the arm. Am I wrong?
