Helen's Shit Hot Pimms



It's not Helen's, it's mine!
Well this cocktail is partly my recipe and partly a friends recipe. The title is a little nod to one my my besties who scoffed at the idea of mixing gin with pimms but quickly changed her mind once I coerced her into tasting some...
To be fair, it really didn't take much arm bending on my part and called me the next day for my 'shit hot' pimms recipe.

The secret ingredient and a new favourite find is Cherry Juice. If you haven't tried cherry juice it's a must! (obviously not if cherries aren't your thang). The juice tastes just like the sweets which I can not remember the name of...

So into the ingredients
150ml Pimms or the delishious Blackberry & Elderflower version
50ml Gin
400ml Lemonade
300ml Cherry Juice
Fresh mint leaves
Chopped Fruit - I use peaches, strawberries and cherries

pimms recipe
The one and only Cherry Juice! Get it folks, you won't regret it!

So yeah, mix it all together and pour over ice...

And yeah I thought I would go with kitschy and put it in a tea pot.
Nothing to do with the fact I don't have a jug, oh no definitely not that...
