Pimms and Lemonade is a lovely drink for summer days. it's nice to have a great big cold jug of it on a hot day, with lots of lovely fruit and herbs in it. people like to put all kinds of things in it. I like Borage flowers (so pretty. just floating or in ice cubes - if you put lemon juice in the water the flowers turn pink, so I do half pink half blue with the ice cubes, or just straight off the plant and floated) Borage leaves - taste like a much lighter cucumber, without the burping strawberries raspberries (we use ones from the freezer, like fruity ice cubes) chopped apple (really soaks up the pimms flavour) kiwi mint leaves lemon balm leaves lots of people like to use chopped orange, lemon or cucumber, but my favourites are above.

What is "Pimms?" I like iced tea or Diet Dr Pepper. I can't drink any cola's because I'm allergic to the stuff, I miss it, but it has been 20 yrs since I've had any.

I don't mind the taste of gin as much as rum or tequilla, but since I can't hold my "likker" I'll take a pass. Besides, I'm allergic to so many fruits that I'd probably rather just eat the ones I like.

My family are Pimms-a-holics. Every summer we have nothing but Pimms in the house! I don't really like it to be honest, but I know what my Mum puts in it as she does the same every year as long as I can remember. She puts in mint, apple, orange, pear and blueberries.

I love the idea of the borage, going to pick some up when I go to the garden centre this week! I cant wait to make those little ice cubes! Thanks so much! I tend to put anything in my pimms although mint cucumber and strawberry are my favourites.

I love borage - its great in a salad. but I guess at some point I'll have to see if the local carries Pimms. I've heard of it for years but never tried it. Maybe its time ;)
