Pimm’s Lollies

You’d better believe that is the sun making an appearance coincides with a bank holiday here in the UK, then there will be booze, plenty of it! Is it stereotypical? Yes. Do we really care? No. Let’s face it, we work all of the hours, usually through any spurt of nice weather & for a lot less money than we ought, bank holidays are all we have so you better believe we like to make the most out of them! Whether it’s heading to the coast, dusting off the BBQ or making sure that the bar is fully stocked, here’s a fun little recipe (if you can even call it that) to add into the mix, Pimm’s lollies. The sunshine is all the excuse you’re going to need to get a batch of these in the freezer. They’re a deliciously cooling way to enjoy a drink this summer, packed with fruity flavour & fun! These are mini lollies, meaning I can make them a little more potent if necessary (it usually is!), but mix it up to a strength that suits you.
