I woke up sans alarm at 5:35 this morning and thought, “The Wedding!” The Royal Wedding of Will and Kate that is. So, I levered myself out of bed, made a pot of coffee and switched on the telly in time to see Kate walk out of the hotel and get into the car. I managed to watch the majority of the wedding, get a shower and only left for work 10 minutes late. The only part I really missed was the kiss. You can only be so late. I liked the dress, the ceremony and the obvious pride of the British in their tradition and country. It was a morning of pomp and circumstance, fresh if not ruddy faced starts that helped make the woes of the world feel far behind. A toast with a Pimm’s Cup is in order! Pimm’s is a British Gin based liquor.
2 oz Pimm’s No. 1
Fill a tumbler with ice. Pour 2 oz Pimm’s No. 1 in tumbler. Pour over ginger ale to fill. Add a lemon slice and straw. Be refreshed! Cheers!
