A picnic with Pimm's

Wimbledon is in full swing (see what I did there?) and what would it be without a glass of Pimm's? Spurred on by the recent heatwave,  I made the most of my visit to Lewes with a picnic in the park, complete with Pimm's and a little spot of tennis. 
We headed into the Grange for our picnic, which is a gorgeous picturesque spot to catch the sun. Pretty flowers, lush green grass and historic buildings. What could be better?

Our picnic started with a classic pitcher of Pimms and Lemonade complete with fruit, cucumber and a garnish of mint. What I love about Pimms is that it’s so versatile. You can add whatever you like and still make it taste good. Oh, and it looks lovely in pretty glass bottles!

Once we'd mastered the basics, things got a bit more technical, using some of the special editions to make a wider variety of cocktails, using these recipes on The Bar. My favourite was the Perfect Pimm's Strawberry! Very cool and refreshing, so ideal for the hot weather!
Just in case things all went to pot, we picked up a couple of the premixed cans, which were not needed in the end but still very well welcomed!
If you'll be cracking out the Pimm's this summer, try mixing things up a bit with a new cocktail!

  7. Looks like a lot of fun. I ALWAYS have to be careful when it comes to Pimms. It goes down so easily and taste so incredible that it often doesn't lead to good places! Ha x

  8. I love a Pimms on a beautiful Summer day. I bet the strawberry one is amazing, I can't wait to give it a go! Unfortunately sunny days are getting rarer and rarer in Scotland :)
