Cowart's Common Room
Pimms O Clock!

Surely it will be time soon? and don't you just love that ad where the different Pimms fruits, ice etc are represented by different characters - love the 'orange' lady with her 'strawberry' dog and that cool gentleman who is 'ice'....

Or what is your favourite summer drink?

Fennie's Avatar Not really Pimms, which I have spent many years trying to like but which seems to become more sickly with every season. You have to go a long way to beat a cold glass of wine - particularly something like Pinot Grigio - or maybe a rosť from Provence.

Preseli Mags's Avatar I love Pimms - I sometimes add ginger ale/beer to give it a bit of a kick. It must have all the fruit, veg and mint in it though. I also love rose wine in the summer - still or sparkling - lovely on a really hot day. Sometimes after a really long and very hot day, only a really cold Grolsch or Stella Artois will do!

CalicoKate's Avatar Any & All of that sounds lovely PM
I Lurve Pims. A wedding I was helping at the other week served Pims after the service in Bon Maman glasses with waxed paper straws. I 'had' to try each of the jugs we made up to make sure it was just right Very HappyCool

When I first read this, it was so early that I hadn't had breakfast. Now that I've had lunch, I'll do the obvious. Since we can't get Pimms in this colony, I'll probably have to settle for some Rum from the Barbados, or Scotch from, well, uh, Scotland. A drop of water in the Scotch; some cola in the rum. Except we're all out of Scotch, and it will take month or so before I have saved enough pennies that I can afford another bottle. Sad I detest beer, so I'll pass on that. Perhaps some Grand Marnier in my tea. No, we're all out of that, too. (I think it was about five years ago we finished our last bottle.)

Life can be tough when you're a Bear living in the colonies.
