Pimm's is without a doubt, the tipple of choice for most Brits when the weather warms up. A refreshing glass – with all the frills – is the ideal accompaniment to a day spent soaking up the sun in the garden (which we will be doing a lot of this summer). And although we won't be able to enjoy a glass of Pimm's whilst watching Wimbledon this year, it doesn't mean that we should miss out on this delicious, gin-based drink altogether. 

So why not toast to a slower pace of life with a glass and/or jug of ice cold Pimm's?

We've unveiled the ultimate and traditional Pimm's recipe below, to ensure you get the balance of flavours right every time. Check it out, then find more tasty cocktail recipes in our feature. There's also plenty of food pairing inspiration over on our hub, for those of you wishing to treat your palate even more.
