Recipe | Pimm's and Lemonade

For those who have never tried it, this is a traditional English summer drink to be enjoyed in the sunshine around 5 o'clock in the evening, aka Pimm's o'clock!  We got the pitcher as a housewarming present from PC's Aunt Kathy.  This is definitely going to be put to use this spring!

What you'll need:                                            
- 1 Large pitcher

- 1 Punnet of strawberries - stalk removed, washed and cut in half lengthways

- 1 Orange - washed, cut in half lengthways and sliced

- 1 Cucumber - washed and cut into thick strips (optional... PC is not a fan!)

- 1 handful of mint - washed thoroughly and

- 1 Bottle of Pimm's No.1

- 1 Bottle of lemonade or as they say in the US 7up or Sprite soda

- 1 Bottle of soda water / club soda

- Ice cubes

- Tall glasses to serve

How it's done:
Put the fruit, including the mint into the pitcher.

Add a handful of cubed ice.

Add 2 part Pimm's to 1 part lemonade and 1 part soda water.  The usual method is 1 part Pimm's to two parts mixer but I prefer it a bit stronger :)

Give it a good old stir.

Pour into as many tall glasses as it'll serve!

Enjoy in the sunshine
