Cheers for Pimms!

pimmsThe quintessential English summer drink has to be Pimms.  Or Pimms No. 1 to be precise.

Wimbledon is starting tomorrow and this English gin sling is what we want, despite the current lack of sunshine.  Jane MacQuitty of The Times has sussed out how to make it from scratch for a version, "Cheat's Pimms",  that packs more of a punch than the original which has been degraded over the years.

The basic recipe is quite simply:

1 measure of 40% gin

1 measure of red vermouth

1/2 measure of Bols Orange Curacao


Top up with a decent lemonade, ice, cucumber, borage (or mint) and see you on Henman Hill!
