Hello, I'm Anne and I'm from Luxembourg and I live in London. My blog Anne's Kitchen focuses on simple, yummy food - mostly with a British angle. As of last year, I have my very own TV show on RTL Luxembourg, on which I'm exploring British cuisine and London food trends. I also published my first cookbook last year. This here is one of my favourite summer recipes from the book:
Prep: 5min - Serves 4 - Quick & Easy
200ml Pimm's Nr. 1
1/4 cucumber, sliced
1/2 orange, diced
1/2 lemon, diced
a handful fresh mint leaves
a few ice cubes
Wash the strawberries, cut off the stem and quarter.
Wash the cucumber and cut into thin slices.
Wash the orange and lemon and cut into dices.
Pour the Pimm's and lemonade into a big jug and add all the other ingredients. Stir and serve.
TIP: You can replace the lemonade for ginger ale.
There's nothing that screams British summer more than a jug of Pimm's. This gin-based lemonade cocktail is enhanced with chunks of cucumber, lemon, orange, strawberries and mint - it's summer in a glass! The general rule of thumb is one part of Pimm's to three parts of lemonade.
I made this recipe in the picnic episode of my show, you can watch it here.
