Pitcher of Pimm’s.

pitcher of Pimm's, Pimm's, cocktail

The end of June and start of July will always make me think of Wimbledon, lazy summer evenings spent watching the tennis and drinking Pimm’s. This cocktail could not be any simpler or easy to make, it is literally the alcohol, lemonade and fruit. However, according to The Times, Wimbledon have not been making it to the correct ratio! It should be 1 part Pimm’s to 3 parts of the mixer.

The pitcher I made was slightly different to the normal recipe, I used some passion fruit juice and sprite instead of lemonade.
