"On our honeymoon we stayed with some friends in London and they made us this drink - now we can't stop making it! It is especially delicious on a hot, summer afternoon. The cucumber and mint are odd, but don't leave them out - they make this drink!"

Pimm's No. 1™ (gin-based liqueur)
(4 inch) wedge of cucumber
red apple, cored and thinly sliced
I love pims and lemonade in the summer but i personally dont have the mint and cucumber in it i prefer it fully fruity, the best bit is when u get to eat the highly alcholic oranges at the end!
For all the yummy fruits added, I couldn't taste anything except for the lemonade. A big disappointment.
Brings back happy memories of Henley Regatta. This is the typical 'tipple' of this event. You have to have the mint and cucumber. Very refreshing, but be careful, you often don't realize how much alchohol is in this!
This was a great tipple at a party I had recently. I didn't add strawberries or pineapple, and I added way more cucumber. Brilliant!
I can't get Pimm's so I used Bombay gin and it was delicious and refreshing. I omitted the pineapple and poured the gin into glasses then poured the steeped lemonade over that. Lovely!
This was delicious! My daughter-in-law's mother was visiting from Manchester, England and I served this to her last night at our BBQ. She said she's going to make me an honorary Brit!!! I did not use the apple or the lime and I increased the mint to 5 leaves.
Refreshing and tasty. Not sure why but after a few hours it seemed to get a slight bitter aftertaste. That tells me to make it in smaller batches which works for me. Was really tasty fresh.
MMMmmmmmmmm.....very refreshing. Great on a hot afternoon in sunny Las Vegas!!! thanks.
