Sunshine and Pimms

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 and let the good times roll.

    I wish my glasses of Pimms looked as pretty as this! I'm fully committed to making up as many glasses as possible to practise!
