Pimms Pimms Pimms!

In England summer is officially here when people start drinking Pimms and lemonade in the sun. Even though I've lived here for six years it was only last summer I tried this drink for the first time, but since then I've been hooked! There's nothing more refreshing on a hot summer's day.

Here's how to make Pimms: fill a glass with ice, mint leaves, strawberries, orange and cucumber. Mix 1 part Pimms with 3 parts lemonade (and by lemonade I mean 7up or Sprite), drink and relax!

Ah so true. Pimms weather is most definitely here. Though you haven't tried Pimms until you've tried it on a punt in Cambridge =) x

Ah, Lisa, you're killing me! Don't show me a beautiful jug of Pimms while I'm stuck in the office for the next five hours! Now I want a picnic!

EVELINA said...

Åh vad mums! Fast har inte hittat Pimm's i Finland ... kanske får göra en österrikisk variant och använda en god öl istället i blandningen =)

A punt is a flat boat that someone steers with a big stick. You MUST visit Cambridge, I grew up there, it's the most beautiful place in this country!

Thank you so much for your advice by the way, I really appreciate it =) x
