In what I suspect will be a regular feature this Summer, I couldn’t help but put a cocktail on the menu when we had friends around for a BBQ recently. And while I was tempted to serve another Santorini Sunrise, the warmer temperatures had me craving Pimm’s. The bonus being that I could make a jug before our guests arrived, ready to be poured with little delay once they had settled in. I can’t remember when I first tried Pimm’s, although I have a feeling it was when we travelled to London. Given that Pimm’s is a rather iconic English drink, well it wouldn’t surprise me at all.
On this occasion I went with a mixture of both lemonade and dry ginger ale, making sure to also fill the jug with oranges, strawberries, limes, mint and, of course, cucumber.
And, as one jug soon turned into two, well it proved to be the perfect cocktail for a summery afternoon with friends.
