The Perfect Pimms! 

How to make the classic summer drink with Alix from The Pear Tree at Purton
There's no better way to get into the swing of outdoor life than a nice glass of PIMMS. Nothing could be more British or more summerly social than mixing up a refreshing jug of lemonade, fresh fruits, mint and the Pimms itself - especially if someone else is doing the cooking!
So who better to ask than the food and drink experts at the quintessentially English Pear Tree at Purton for how to make this classic summer drink.
Alix from The Pear Tree at Purton explains how to make the perfect Pimms
For when it's Pimms O'Clock!
You will need:

- A bottle of Pimms (of course!)
- Plenty of Ice
- Lemonade
- Cucumber
- Fruit (Apple/Oranges)
- Strawberries
- Fresh mint

- Add 1 part Pimms to 3 parts lemonade over ice
- Add Fresh Mint and Cucumber
- Add some sliced Orange and Strawberries to taste
- Add some fresh mint
- Serve in a tall glass
Alix's top tip: Don't forget the Mint! It's essential in the perfect Pimms
And for those who really want to celebrate summer - the Pimms Royale!
Just prepare your Pimms the Alix way - but swap the lemonade for Champagne!
