DIY Pimms

Mym* mandates the following procedure, which is cheaper, tastier and more efficacious.

You will need:

  • 2 parts decent gin
  • 2 parts red vermouth
  • 1 part orange curacao-type liqueur (Cointreau, Triple Sec etc)

Top up with a fizzy – tonic water perhaps, and garnish with borage or mint and thinly sliced cucumber, or a thin slice of orange or lemon.

NO strawberries!

I feel the only thing with which I need annotate this Perfection is Caution – it is awfully strong.

(Update: Rachel B. agrees with these ingredients but recommends equal portions.)
