We opted for Pimms and a BBQ which was significantly calmer. For those of you unfamiliar with Pimms it is my fave summer beverage. Its a gin based drink made from fruit and other yummy stuff.

Although I am not a fan of drinking cucumbers or mint so I usually substitute with more lemon, lime and oranges which makes for a nice citrussy summer drink.
The clever marketing dudes have coined the phrase “It’s Pimms o’clock” which the hubby and his friends like to chant in their best English accents whenever we drink it. There is also a winter version of Pimms (ingeniously called Pimms Winter) which you mix with warm apple juice and is really lovely on a cold wintery day but I still prefer the summer one as it reminds me of sunny days in the park or BBQ’s at our flat.
