50 Challenges: No.25 Cheat’s Pimms

On a sultry Friday afternoon, what better recipe than for Cheat’s Pimms? (Non-alcoholic ideas below).

The consensus is

2 parts gin

2 parts red vermouth

1 part Orange Curacao

1 slice each orange, lemon, cucumber per person.

Mix in glass, top up with ice cold lemonade or ginger ale. Sip.

Some people have substituted Cointreau for the Curacao, and most swear by 40 degree gin.

If unworried by the Times paywall, see the full story here http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/life/food/wine/article1785457.ece

And the Aldi version is called Archers.

If for whatever reason you do not drink alcohol, you can find some non-alcoholic cocktail recipes here.
