Where did I see this exact bit of business from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

In the film (and actually in the linked trailer at about 2:10 or so) there's a bit in which Judi Dench, who is having a really bad day, walks over to someone's table, says "I need a glass of water," takes their glass and knocks it back in one huge gulp.
At which point the drink's owner points out "that's a gin and tonic."
Dench's only reaction is to take a beat and then, very calmly, say "I know that now."
Okay, cute. But I know that they lifted that bit in its entirety from something else because I've seen it before, done exactly that way. The problem is that I can't remember where I saw it - what movie or TV show, which characters did it - and it's driving me crazy right now. Anybody else recognize this bit and have a pedigree for it?
