Pimms & Ginger Beer
The first time I had a Pimms drink was over ten years ago.
It was at a wedding, actually, the first of my friends to get married.
What I remember even more was my welcome drink.
Even though I was surrounded by all these people, I felt quite lonely.
My boyfriend of 7 years had just left me, no one knew yet, and we attended the wedding 'as a couple' as we did not want to draw any attention to the situation on this special day.
So I sat outside, on the back porch, my gold dress sparkling in the late afternoon sun. And I sipped this delicious drink.
The father of the groom was a butcher, so the food was perfect - I remember well sitting down with my very carnivorous plate. And I remember that the butcher's other son made me blush.
1-2 onces of Pimms
4 oz ginger beer
Slices of cucumber
Lots of ice!
