Pimms and er, Croquet on the Lawn..

OK, so there was no croquet, I may be fancy but I'm not quite that fancy. Pimms though- what a delightfully refreshing, Summery drink. Obviously this is an alcoholic cocktail (about 25% vol..eep) so drink responsibly and only if you're over 18 (Unfortunately for me, it's been a good decade since I last had a surly bouncer check my i.d. Oh, those were the days).
Anyways, you'll need:

Pimms No.1, 50mls if you're only making one glass (but that'd be crazy cause it's delicious and you'll undoubtedly want more), or 200mls for a jug.
Lemonade (we went for the cloudy variety, just for added interest..very exciting lives we lead altogether)
Mint (about half a packet)
Oranges (I used two)
A punnet of Strawberries
Half a cucumber, peeled
A lemon.
You can also add in other fruit if you like- I made this with apples before too and it was lovely.

Slice all the fruit, throw into your jug with a load of ice.
Pour over one part Pimms to three parts Lemonade.
Give it a good old stir!

Add your mint on top to garnish..

..and enjoy!


  1. Right, I am going to need you to come over to my house and bring your mixing arm. Mine is broken... but I have the jug and the ingredients!!!

    1. Oh no, you poor thing! I would gladly be your mixologist, I believe I have now perfected the art of the Pinms making! :) x

  2. I can't have the dang Pimms but the rest looks gorgeous! The mere mention of the word croquet makes me want to watch Heathers x

    1. Aah, I love Heathers!! Oh Christian Slater..swoon. xx
