Pimm’s explained by a real British person, in this case our beloved Paola of mirrormirror. At Shelterrific.

Benedictine Caviar and Cherry Heering Caviar recipes for the Singapore Slingshot, at Spirits and Cocktails. I think cocktails might be the thing to finally get me to learn to use that sodium alginate stuff.

    When I was in Seattle last month my friends took me to The White Horse, a bookstore/bar in Post Alley near the market. They serve Pimm’s Cups there, but I don’t remember which number. Whichever it was, it was delicious.

    The Singapore slingshot made me laugh. Last year while on a 12 hour layover in Singapore I decided to make it my goal to have a real Singapore Sling in Singapore. I went to the Raffles bar(where it was invented) and paid like $18.00 US for the syrupy thing. But I did it so that someday(perhaps it’s today) I could say I had a Singapore Sling in Singapore.

    I’ve been making this Vodka Rosemary Lemonade Fizz lately:

    Great for warm weather (and also tasty minus the vodka)

    How funny! I was just reading a piece in the Guardian UK about How to Drink: Pimms.

    Pimm’s in a pitcher goes down too easily in Hillman City on a sunny day. Or anywhere for that matter.

    Napoleon House serves an absolute perfect Pimm’s Cup — exactly how described above. It’s doubly perfect, actually, with the ambiance and thick blanket of air on a warm night in New Orleans… better even than the mint julep!
