Amen!

And Hallelujah for this drink. I’m not the biggest fan of complicated cocktails especially ones that require me chop a lot and stand in front of a stove, straining and cooling. And then muddling and straining some more. Good Lord. To make a cold beverage? Puleez. And perhaps I say that I would make this drink again because I’m not the one who made it in the first place.

And In Second Place…

With two more weeks of summer left after our Cocktail #10: Aviation, we thought, now what? The answer was obvious: End-of-Summer cocktails. So obvious.

The first time I had a Pimm’s cup was at a fellow teacher’s garden party while I was teaching near London. For the life of me I can’t recall her name. I do remember all her clothes were from Boden, a J.Crew, Banana Republic type catalogue clothing company in UK. By this I mean no hemlines above the knee, modest scoop necks, demure earrings, hideous flower pattern coats and dresses that only look good on skinny blond models because anything looks good on skinny blond models.

She did, however, make a great punch bowl of Pimm’s packed full of fruit.

Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based liquor made in England from dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices and spices. It was created in 1859 by the English oyster bar owner James Pimm. The recipe is still a secret, and only six persons know exactly how it is made.
