It's Pimm's O'clock

Prior to traveling to England, Susanna was looking forward to a daily Pimm's Cup.  Pimm's #1 is a gin based liqueur that has been around since 1850's.   





Served mixed with lemonade or sometimes ginger beer, it is muddled together with trims such as orange or lemon pieces, mint sprigs, fresh strawberries or raspberries, cucumber and other fruits. No two alike!

Every pub owner offers a Pimms cup with their own special twist and it was fun to try them all!

Looks like fun! Glad you could enjoy it!

I LOVE Pimms #2...with all the fruit, rather than the more veggie one. Quite addicting...but difficult to find here in the US...THAT brought back some fun memories!

I was thinking maybe this is what Susan Branch talked about in "A Find Romance"!

Thanks for the explanation, I was wondering what Pimm's was. It sounds rather delicious!

Okay, thank you for explaining this! I've read about Pimm's for years and now I know what it truly is!
