Pimm’s No 1 (Swedish lemonade)

Had a great weekend, hanging out with some of my ”civilian” friends (i.e. people I did not meet in the social democratic movement). We started Friday evening with a bhoys dinner and my job was to provide a nice drink before the first dish.

Since the weather is picking up, I wanted to serve one of my favorite drinks, Pimm’s No 1. But I ran into one problem; according to the original British recipe, one should mix the bottle of Pimm’s with three parts chilled ”lemonade”. But what do you buy in a Swedish supermarket when you are looking for ”lemonade”?

I ended up buying both Ginger Ale and Sprite, so I made two carafes, just to compare the two. And most of us thought that the carafe with Ginger Ale was much better. So when Swedish people google ”Pimm’s”, I hope this could be of some help. And don’t forget that it is totally OK to sharpen it all it up with some extra gin.

That's one of the questions fired by Mr Will Shiled that just leaves you... without a quick answer. But DeTox, no one will understand this anyway.

I usually take Sprite and 7Up, think it works pretty well!
