Meg’s Magical Summer Pimms Punch November 21, 2017
Our recipe developer Meg is a canny little soul. (No really, she’s very little. We’d never hold it against her though!) She’s always brimming with new ideas to delight our senses and tickle our tastebuds.
This summer Pimms Punch really is magical – all the fruit and fresh herbs bring out the complex aromatics of the Pimms, giving you a complex flavour that is still refreshing. Plus, Pimms has a lower alcohol content than liquor (around 25%), so it’s a less boozy way to enjoy a summertime tipple that won’t leave you dehydrated!

- Soda water, to fill
- Slice the orange into thin slices (skin on). Slice the grapefruit into slices (skin on). Slice the lime into thin slices (skin on). Remove the green tops from the strawberries and slice into quarters. Slice the cucumber into thin slices on a diagonal. Pick the mint leaves.
- Divide the orange, strawberries, cucumber, lime and mint leaves between two large jugs. Divide the Pimms, lemonade, cranberry juice, pineapple juice and orange juice between the jugs and gently stir with a large wooden spoon to mix everything together.
