If there's anything that screams British Summer time its a nice cold glass of Pimms on a perfectly manicured lawn. However, in my case I'll be enjoying it on a slightly balding garden with an annoying downward tilt. Nothing a good old Pimms won't fix, I'll just close my eyes and imagine.
When TheBar.com got in touch and asked me to share a recipe for this traditional Summer drink I was delighted. Normally I'd try and put my own spin on things but why tamper with perfection? Although, I do have a hankering to turn this delicious cocktail into an ice lolly, more on that later...
The thing I love most about Pimms is the ease of putting the drink together. It's just as simple to make a tipple for one as it is to make for ten making it the perfect drink to serve for a Summer garden party, weather permitting of course. Mix up a few big jugs of Pimms and let the good times roll.
Pimms Summer Cup
25ml Pimms Cup No1
2 Strawberries, quartered
Sprig of mint
Fill a tall glass with ice and add a few slices of cucumber, lemon and the strawberry quarters. Pour over the Pimms then fill the glass half way with ginger beer, top up with lemonade. Give it a little mix, pop a sprig of mint in the top and enjoy.
