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?
I want to break. I've been seeing Tuesday and dreaming about Friday. Sincerely, it's not me, it's you...

This is one of the most unusual and also one of the favourite sections in our shop
. That's the main reason for this post. Pian, pianino we have created a great collection of unique items carefully selected by us on our trips to different countries. Peter and I love to travel and discover precious objects that you normally can't find elsewhere. He loves the South of France, and knows almost every hidden market. So it's very exciting every time that he goes hunting...!
They are OOAK (One Of A Kind) because there is just ONE of each, as they are original vintage pieces. That's why they are so special. We only pick the ones that, despite being more than thirty years old, are still in very good condition. So, if you like something you'd better hurry...He who hesitates is lost! Take a look, check it out
and you'll see.
Good day everyone!
