Pimm's Punch

About 250ml of Pimm's to 1 liter of lemonade

Since we haven't really done anything extremely "British" these past few days of the Jubilee holiday, I felt we should do something....thus I decided to make a pitcher of Pimm's (even though the sun really has not made an appearance for the holiday weekend.)  When my husband's English friend (who in a cruel twist lives in Laguna Beach) came to visit around Easter time he made a pitcher of Pimm's and added some green chili, I absolutely loved it.  So I decided to do the same here.  I think the only difference here is I didn't have any strawberries, but it was just as good without.  This punch is great as it reminds me of one of my favorite cocktails, the dirty martini as it comes with olives, (like a mini snack!)  This punch contains orange slices, mint leaves, cucumber slices, etc. like a mini salad!  (If you let the ingredients marry long enough with the liquid the infusion of flavors is really great.)  Great for a hot day outside. Also strangely enough, I do believe Pimm's can be found in the US for a cheaper price then we get it for here in England....Cheers!

My crop of herbs is great, thus the inspiration to make the pitcher of Pimm's since you can't forget the fresh mint

I sliced up what I had on hand, but feel free to try lemon slices, apple slices or add strawberries

Funnily enough Pimm's has the coloring of tea!
