Pimms Cup

Possibly it is better on a hot summer afternoon in England. In my daydreams I'm there, the long interval picnic at Glyndebourne Opera House, bare feet tucked under me, pale blue dress to match the pale blue sky, a lazy conversation, but not much of it. Condensation drips from the cold fruit-filled glass...

But on a rainy spring evening in a Brooklyn apartment, I can happily report, Pimms Cup (virgin for Ella, alcohol for me) is delightful.

I have to say I'm a Pimms Cup virgin in another sense. I don't think I've ever drunk it.

Nick, it is so totally delicious! mixed with lemonade and full of fruit, apparently cucumber and fresh mint is de rigeur, and I added nectarine, apricot, orange, lemon, and lime.

That sounds totally amazing! I will have to try it.

A hot sunny afternoon in England?

Way too much Pimms has already been consumed by you my dear.

Chef, I have heard a rumor that there is a hot and sunny day every score of years or so...and I intend to be drinking Pimms when that day comes round again!

What a strange kind of salad sauce, I'd give it a try.
