How to make a summer Pimm’s cocktail

Did you know that Pimm’s was invented by a farmer’s son named Pimm and was first served as an aid to digestion? True story. Loved by many a Wimbledon fan, we’ve taken this drink and added a few tooty fruits, white wine and lemonade. Here’s how to make it.

Ingredients (for a jug, approximately 4-6 people):

125ml Pimm’s

Fresh summer fruit (as much as desired)

4. Mix all the ingredients inside the jug with a long-handled spoon.
5. Using your Sodastream, conjure up a quick lemonade. Insert a Sodastream bottle, filled with cold water, into the Sodastream. Fizz for the desired amount of carbonation before adding your lemonade syrup.
