a walk and some Pimm’s

If you haven’t tried this refreshing, very English drink, you really should.

One cool but bright Sunday afternoon we went for a walk in the Spring sunshine, enjoying the heat on our skin …

Then we had Pimm’s and Limonata, picking strawberries out of the glass afterwards.  Just perfect.

Recipe:

Pimm’s Cup No.1
San Pellegrino Limonata
Ice cubes
Lemon slices
Diced strawberries

Options: diced cucumber and strawberries or diced strawberries and orange slices

Measure out Pimm’s and Limonata ratio 1-3 into glass tumblers.  Add lemon and strawberries.

      I haven’t had a single glass of Pimms this summer, mind you the weather has been dire. Adding the limonata is an inspired idea. I am now craving a glass of Pimms, although I like cucumber in mine :)

      Pimms and limonata sound refreshingly good together, I usually just have mine plain pimms but this looks so refreshing. Love it when you said you picked the strawberries out of the glass afterwards :) love the photos.

      Pimm’s is so underused in the cocktail world. Its one of my fave refreshing drinks. I usually mix it with ginger ale but San Pellegrino Limonata sounds perfect for a hot summer evening. If you love Pimm’s, you should also try Tuaca. Its a vanilla citrus liqueur- mix with muddled limes and oranges and top with a slash of seltzer. It goes down fast so be careful! Cheers!
