Warm weather brings thoughts of Pimms and lemonade in sweaty glass pitchers, cucumber and orange slices macerating while the fresh mint wilts. But straightforward pints of Hoegaarden (or even Stella) come to mind as well. Sunshine, friends, and a tab that spans hours too mindless to count – that’s (one version of) summer to me.
I don’t live in Europe anymore and that’s not my life now. If you haven’t had it, try some Pimms and lemonade (aka “Pimms cup” in the US) this summer. For better or worse, you’ll never forget it.
*Everyone who has ever had Pimms, that is.
