Maelfroth II

So having listened to the suggestions of the great and good, I have made an executive decision, but need more help:

Poll #1410282 Serving Suggestions

So what goes into Pimms?

Apple
0(0.0%)
Strawberries
0(0.0%)
Cucumber
1(4.5%)
Mint
2(9.1%)

Any thing else?



Apologies to Lala - I mucked up the poll (either/or radio buttons instead of multi answer checkboxen)

Edit: To clarify this will not be neat Pimms ;-)

I have added "orange" as my anything else - meaning slices of. These are not necessary, however; but Pimms must have cucumber and mint.

As I put in the wonky poll, pimms is nice mixed with ginger ale for a change to lemondade :D

Well I am a heretic - I have mine with tonic instead - mwa ha ha ha - as lenomade is too sweet. For me.

I once recall seeing some leaflet with various suggestions of Pimms & xxx - tonic, ginger etc.

Well, as far as heresies go, that's a pretty good one :)

It'd make the Gnostics feel pretty silly...

I don't think the Gnostics would appreciate Pimms :D

On the one hand Pimms is quite hedonistic and hence an antithesis of the ascetic. On the other hand there are complex ritualisitic practices involved with the preparation of Pimms ... ;-)

Strawberries is a bit weird, but hey, they taste nice! Always mint and cucumber though.

Re: Borage?

Is that instead of Mint or as well as Mint?

One more thought. A couple of weeks go Sainsbury were doing a Pimms clone which was a lot cheaper than the real stuff, and went down well with the camp cricket.

Yep; that was totally drinkable. About half the price, if I recall correctly.

Unfortunately I've already bought the Pimms ...

Anything bar mint.
It's a strong taste & will permiate through all liquid in a jug. Put that in the glasses if people want it.

(I blame nightnurse for making me through up so I now dislike the smell & taste of fresh mint).

Hay but the chances of me being over there with a character your likely to offer pimms to when you actually have it made up.....

Mint as optional "dressing" on side noted.

Strawberries and Orange slices as they are summery and nice

chuck the rest of that crap at some chavs on the way to site, preferably while on fire and wrapped in dynamite
