Pimm’s anyone?

Cocktail makingNothing says summer like a glass of Pimm’s, it always reminds me of Wimbledon, The Chelsea Flower Show, weddings and happy times with friends.
So as it is definitely a fun drink, it needed to be made with the help of a friend.

For each glass
ice cubes
1 measure of Pimm’s No1
1 measure of gin
2 measures of lemonade
2 measures of ginger ale
cucumber slices,blueberries, strawberries and orange wheels to garnish.Cocktail garnishFill a highball glass with ice cubes (we used these vintage beer glasses as our highball didn’t look the part). Add each ingredient one by one then decorate with cucumber, strawberries orange and blueberries.

This is the first time I have added a measure of gin, it tasted good but did make it a lot stronger. Pimm’s is a dangerously refreshing drink so for a lighter (but still alcoholic) option leave out the gin.Pimms cocktailPimmsCocktails in the gardenProceed with caution, may cause wobbly legs. Drink aware etc.
