Chilli Ginger Pimms

So, ran out of all the usual things you’d use to make Pimms and came up with a decidedly better version than any I’ve had before from stuff in the fridge.

Ignore the strawberry...

1.  Fruit & Veg & Herb & Rhizome.

Cucumber/fresh root ginger/lemongrass (sticks smashed a bit)/lemon or lime slices/apple/small red chilli (halved only, de-seeded)/mint or basil. Mash (as in tea not potato) with Pimms in the fridge for as long as you can bear so all the flavours properly infuse the liquor.

2. Banish the lemonade.

Add 3 parts Ginger Beer to every 1 part Pimms (could add some ginger ale to take even more of the sweetness off). Ignore fact it looks like bin-lorry juice.

3. Quaff.

Pour over ice, savour the aroma and watch the sunset whilst swatting the mozzies with your electrified tennis racket (for those in the UK, you’ll have to imagine the tropical ambience and try not to cry).
