There's no summer drink more quintessentially British than Pimm's. Everyone knows that. Well, everybody in England, because it is quite an English thing, you know dahlings. I dare compare it to Spanish Sangria, but more stylish. "Seductively tawny in colour, and festively festooned with fruit and sprigs of mint, it's a drink inextricably linked to the great British summer, especially events like Ascot and Wimbledon" (you can also guzzle one if you're simply lazing in the back garden on a hot sunny day! ).
Did you know that it was first produced in 1823 by Mr. James Pimm, a 19th century London oyster bar owner who decided to offer his clients a "fruit cup" that developed from the popular punch? The recipe is still a secret; supposedly, only six people know exactly how it is made, but here goes a Traditional Recipe, easy and quick to prepare:
Take the Jug /Drink Dispenser or a glass and add as much ice as you like.
Pour one part Pimm's No. 1 with three parts lemonade over the ice.
Add mint leaves, thin cucumber slices, orange slices and strawberry and serve.
It can also be mixed with Champagne (or a sparkling white wine) "Pimm's Royal Cup".
Now you know that it's the perfect drink to serve your guests because it's universally liked and (most importantly) looks so good in our Kilner Drink Dispenser! (Yes, they're back in stock so you'd better hurry)How pretty does it look??? Anyone for Pimm's?
