It’s official: the weather is pretty nice, the sunnies are firmly fixed on our faces and the beer gardens are once again full…hello Spring/Summer you cheeky devil!
As I’ve mentioned previously, this year is about drinking a little less often but still being sociable, so I’m reaching for drinks that still allow me to enjoy some of the summer trends but allow me to keep to my goals.
My faux Pimms recipe is perfect for this as it tastes the same (in my opinion) as the real deal but you can still be the designated driver after a massive jug full of the stuff. Plus, you can make it with key ingredients that you may already have at home:
– Tall, cool looking glass (mine is from the homeware section at
– Lemonade (I used Schweppes slimline, but any standard lemonade will be fine)
– Balsamic vinegar
– Lemon and lime wedges cute in to segments
Step 1: put 2 or 3 large ice cubes in the bottom of your glass
Step 2: fill you glass 2/3 to 3/4 way up with lemonade
Step 3: add 1/3 to 1/4 balsamic vinegar to top up (I would recommend adding in a lower amount and then tasting so that you’re adding an amount that tastes nice to you and not too vinegar-ey)
Step 4: add in segments of lemon and lime
