This Summer leading us into 2013 has finally brought us Melbournians some sweet sweet relief from the never ending winter we braved in 2012.
I have found myself more often than not venturing outside and letting my skin soak in those almighty vitamin D rays, and how glorious it has been.
I am lucky enough to have two of my very best friends living next to a pretty awesome park in the city, one which we’ve wandered across to on many occasions to just LAZE and EAT and DRINK and SOAK in those rays.
The food will generally consist of cheeses and dips and crackers, perfect really. And now the summer warmth is back in our grasp, the park ventures are now also consisting of PIMMS.
That giant bowl of PIMMS excites my senses, ever.single.time. It’s the perfect blend of FRUIT and SODA and PIMMS, AND you can do an alcohol free version too! Who wouldn’t love it!
It’s the simplest thing on the planet to organise, and below I am going to list my favourite ingredients, truth is, you can basically add any.bloody.thing to this, and it will still taste amazing! (well , as long as your any.bloody.thing is of the fruit variety…..)
Mebelu Pimms Mix – Summer in your MOUTH.
You will need:
Apples (green or red, or both!) – sliced
Oranges – sliced
Pineapple – cubed
Lime – sliced
Strawberries – halved
Cucumber – sliced
Your portions of fruit are completely up to you depending on how much you want to consume! I prefer a giant bowl!
Add one cup PIMMS to 3 cups Soda water / Lemonade. – But again, portions are up to you!
Add a touch of ginger beer/ale (or ginger cordial) for taste.
Nb: Mint can also be added for the extra ZING.
Now all you gotta do is mix is allllll up together and consume!
EASY PEASY JAPA… never mind, I think that is politically incorrect to say these days!!!
Voila – ENJOY – Chin chin.
Its Tuesday AGAIN, holy wow, the years flying already, go over and share some IBOT love, some hot summer lovin’
PS. This is not a sponsored post, HOWEVER, if Mr Pimms would like to send me a lil something something, I guess I would be OBLIGED to accept!
