What’s the most efficient way to transfer workers that are mining minerals to mine gas instead?

When my Refinery finishes in the heat of battle, I don’t have time to manually find 3 workers that aren’t holding any minerals.

What is the optimal way to transfer 3 workers from minerals to gas without sacrificing any minerals?

Answer

I found what I think is actually the best answer while browsing the Team Liquid forums:

The most efficient way is to select any 3 workers, right click on the gas, then immediately hit C (return cargo). Workers that are holding minerals will drop off their minerals, and then proceed to gas. Meanwhile, workers without minerals will head straight for the gas!
