Pimm's Smoothie with Co-Operative and Giveaway!

I don't know about you, but when the sunshine comes out I love a cool refreshing drinks of Pimm's! It is simply a perfect drink to relax with in the sun!

So when I was asked to create a new cocktail using Pimm's I could not wait to get started.

I know that the traditional way to enjoy Pimm's is with lemonade, strawberries, cucumber and mint. So I decided to make cocktail based on the traditional drink but I gave it a new twist. I left out the lemonade and made a smoothie using just the fruits. Poured over ice this is a perfect way to enjoy some of your five a day with a good old dash of Pimm's!

This is what I did...



Pimms Smoothie

Ingredients

200g Strawberries
100g Cucumber
2 tbsp Fresh mint
100mls Pimm's

Method

Simply place all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz until you have a smoothie!

Pour into a glass of ice and enjoy!

  28. We had our Pimms with lemonade, orange slices, strawberrys, mint, cucumber, ice, and special homemade cardboard glass covers held in place with the straws. This was after a bird poo near miss because we have house martins nesting on the house! Thank goodness it missed the Pimms, they were full tall glasses, it would have been terrible! hahaha!
