What Would Laura Drink? Pimm’s, made from scratch

Off to see Labyrinth* in Manor House Gardens later so am making Pimm’s. Usually “making Pimm’s” is interpreted as “adding lemonade to readymade Pimm’s”, which causes confusion when I turn up with my own concoction in a plastic bottle. Actually make it! You get more booze for your buck, plus it’s all ingredients you can use for other drinks (as opposed to readymade Pimm’s, which is a one trick pony, and pretty much redundo from October to May.) It’s:

1 part gin

1 part red vermouth

0.5 parts triple sec

Once poured in cups, just add a shit load of fruit (I go strawberries, orange, lime and cucumber, plus a sprig of mint) and a handful of ice, then top with lemonade.

He gets angry if you forget the strawberries

Cheers! <clinks glass. Spills down hand>

*The eighties film classic starring David Bowie. Not to be confused with rapper Labrinth. (FYI, Laura would do the Goblin King.)
