I tire of Pimm's quickly. But for a few hot weeks in summer it feels delicious. Here it is with tonic, a lot of lemon, and the requisite suitcaseful of ice.
When I went in to Heights Chateau yesterday evening, Geraldine said, But Vincent (she pronounces it in French - Vuh-saaw) was 'ere already! He bought prosecco!
I know, I said, But we are very thirsty.
I walked out with gin, vodka, vermouth and the Pimms. The gin was for the sumac we collected on Sunday. The vodka for the chokecherries, the Pimms for me and the vermouth for our supper stew of chicken with fennel, and for Vuh-saaw's martini.
We're still standing.
