As soon as the sunshine makes an appearance you can almost guarantee that every pub garden, bar and BBQ is suddenly serving glass after glass of Pimms and who can blame them? Brimming with summer fruits it is easy to see why so many turn to this staple in the summer months, but like everything there is too much of a good thing and as we’re nearing the end of the summer we have found that we’re growing weary of the same old recipe. Our twist on the traditional features the addition of iced tea that results in a slightly less sweet flavour than the classic recipe offers, but filled with citrus fruits this tea is just as refreshing.
One of the things we love about a pitcher of Pimms Iced Tea is that just like it’s traditional counterpart, it’s easy to scale up or down for a bigger celebration or more intimate affair making this perfect for street parties and garden parties alike. We’re delving back into the ProCook archive for this recipe, but it still tastes just as good two years later!
All you will need to make our Pimms Iced Tea is a small saucepan, a jug, a peeler, a sharp knife, a juicer/reamer, a carafe and some glasses to serve. If you’re looking for a refreshing cocktail but our Pimms Iced Tea isn’t quite doing it for you, our English Garden, Classic Gin +Tonic or Tom Collins may be of interest to you and are all just as easy and quick to make.
