pimm’s cup

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
Ginger Ale
Lemon slice

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!
