Today is overcast and it’s been raining, but yesterday was one of the first days this year that could reasonably be described as summery. So yesterday in the BOGOF household we saw the arrival of the First Pimms Of Summer.

It would be nice to say that we drank it on the terrace overlooking the formal gardens, but sadly we have neither. It was however a welcome reminder that winter is past.

I could just drink a big glass of that, Marie. Tell me how to make a good one. xxxx

We (or rather John as he makes brilliant Pimms) make it one parts Pimms to two parts diet lemonade.

Put the bottle, and jug if possible, in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Put loads of ice in the jug then pour in the Pimms and lemonade. We don't bother with the various fruit and things.

If you use diet lemonade, it works out at only 60 calories per glass. My kind of drink...

Pimms!!! Rediscovered this with a vengeance at Bel's birthday part. Had two pints (heavily diluted with lemonade I hasten to add!)
