Pimms and Holidays
This is another recipe that I can't believe I didn't give you sooner! I love Pimms and if you haven't tried it, you don't know what you are missing. Pimms is considered by some to be an English warm weather drink, although I'll drink it year round. It's Gin based and scrumptious! Scott calls it "dirty good" because it's one of those drinks where you don't realize you are drinking alcohol and you can get in trouble if you are not careful.
So be careful, and enjoy.
We are off for our holidays tomorrow. 10 days of sitting on the beach, visiting wineries, and goofing around. I'm sure I'll be having plenty of Pimms, so I'll toast you tomorrow night. Have a wonderful time, and see you soon.
One part Pimms
Three parts Lemonade
Thin Cucumber slices
Thin Lemon slices
Mix well and serve over ice.
It's very important that you do not omit the cucumber. While it may sound weird, it makes all the difference in the world. Trust me.
PS - Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian readers and Happy 4th of July to you Americans! Be safe!
