hey all,
i remember that recently there was a discussion about how well pimms goes with cigars (i'm pretty sure deano was involved in this)!!! anyhoo, i picked up a 700cl bottle in tescos for 12!!! had it with tescos own lemonade (according to the label, it's made with 'real sicilian lemons'), 2 wedges of orange and a few leaves of mint........ oh, and of course, ice!!!

folks, i think i've just found my drink for the summer!!! lol!!

all the best,

alex

Pimms is lush!!! Chuck loads of berries and strawberries in the jug too....they taste magic once the jug has been drained...full of alcohol

Yep I've definitely said it goes together well, love the stuff! As said, berries, cucumber, lime, lemon, mint, perfect.

oh the joy!!!!

Hahahaha! That is excellent!!! :smile:

Back on subject though, I had a couple of glasses of Pimms at my cousin's wedding a few weeks back, it contained plenty of fruit and a bit of cucumber. I have to admit that I wouldn't be overly fussed if I never drank it again. Give me a G&T any day!!!

I do love a G&T but I love Pimms as well. Both go well with a cigar.

Not a fond lover of cigars and coffee, nor with white wine...champagne, cognac, etc go great though!

Pimms, G&T... both excellent. Another excellent option which I'm sure would go down very well with the Pimms lovers is a nice glass of sloe gin and lemonade. Especially good as an evening alternative to the Pimms I find. :)

I do not believe that I have tried any sloe gin before, I must do something about that and soon!

Lurked for so long, but could not hold back on this thread!

Pimms n lemonade needs 2 measures of vodka and one measure of gin to be added for the ultimate taste.

Also, Sloe Gin... Fantastic. Like that? Try Sloe Vodka, even better. Both easily home made if you can get your sloes, and so much better than shop bought.

Don't know why, can't stand vodka or (almost) anything with it in... :der: :biggrin1:

Yeh I don't like vodka either. Made my own sloe gin last year, it's very very good if I say so myself.

I see some people put Jagger in their Pimms, I suppose as an alternative to bitters.

i wouldn't be a vodka man either...... however, i have been taken by grey goose vodka!! it's nothing like smirnoff etc, there's something clean tasting and pure about it!!! taken in a tall glass with lime and coke, it's quite lovely!!!

Got sick on screwdrivers a few years back and now cant stand Vodka. (or orange juice).

So really think i should have a go at this Pimms lark now, you have all quenched my thirst.

Have to agree with the Pimms love-fest going on....lovely drink. Might fire up a wee jug just now...sun's beating down here in Perth :thumb:

CIV - have you tried tequila and Red Bull...lovely, sweet & sour drink. Never paired it with a stick yet so don't how it'd taste!?!?
