Pimms and Virgin 'Pimms' - Berry Grape Lemonade

Pimms is a very popular drink served in England and is especially popular during the Wimbledon Season. It is a very refreshing drink to sip in Summer. So when the sun is shining, no doubt we also made some and enjoyed it this week. The original recipe used Lemonade that is fizzy. I do not like any fizzy drinks. So I have made this with Still Lemonade.


And why the Virgin? We had a few people who did not drink alcohol and I wanted to make something they will love, equally refreshing, similar looking and tasting. So what do you think of that version?


This is the Alcohol Free Version

Wimbledon has come and gone. Though I don't watch a lot of tennis, when my Husband watches it, I get hooked to it. This year was no different. Loved watching Serena get her Serena Slam. Best wishes for her to win the final title of this year as well. Sad about Federer losing out. For the first time I also watched the Doubles. It was double bonus for Indian fans. In Women's Doubles, Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza played a nerve wrecking match. When all seemed lost, they fought their way back. In the mixed doubles, it was a beautiful synchronized dance with Leander Peas and Martina Hingis not giving the opponents any chance. 6-1, 6-1 in 40 min. Fantastic weekend of Tennis.

Now off to the recipe
