Think English summer with picnics, garden parties or simply a lazy afternoon watching cricket on the village green and the first drink to spring to mind must be a glass of Pimm's. The boozy, salad in a glass is synonymous with an English summer and has been for a very long time; Pimm's has been loved and drunk here since 1840.
I have not yet had my first Pimm's of the year but with a picnic planned this weekend guess what I'll be taking along.
