  • Sprig mint (optional)
  • Apple slice (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • 3 parts lemon (such as San Pellegrino) or lemon-lime soda. I use a mix of both.

Place all of the above in glass or pitcher. Stir a bit. Serve and enjoy.

Pimms itself is low-alcohol, so people won't get smashed on just a couple of glasses. Some recipes add gin, which ups the alcohol level. If you add champagne it becomes a Pimms Royale.
Skip the cucumber, if I bring some borage leaves(a part of the traditional recipe, or so I'm lead to believe) can I have some?
