When Pimm's No1 was first offered to customers in James Pimm's City of London oyster bar in 1823, it was known as the 'House Cup' after the tankards in which it was served.

Pitcher perfect

Blue skies - check. Munchies and barbecue meats - check. All you need now to complete the perfect weekend junk trip and barbecue is a selection of ice-cold libations, and nothing goes better with a day of sun and surf than a refreshing cocktail.

the mixer

Pimm's No 1 is the quintessential English drink. It's inseparable from the Henley Royal Regatta and Wimbledon tennis, but if made correctly, Pimm's and lemonade is the perfect summer cocktail for all occasions. While it's not a strong liquor - 25 per cent alcohol - it's potent enough when downed in large volumes, as it often is.

Sunny side up

It could have been the overspill from the latest humanitarian crisis: hungry, hollow-eyed refugees far from home, forced to relieve themselves behind bushes; reduced to rations extricated reverentially from ice-boxes like jewels from Nefertiti's tomb; obliged to spend another night in the open as temperatures nose-dived and gales and downpours battered their resolve.

A taste of English summer

SUMMER IN ENGLAND WOULD not be summer without Pimm's. It is as essential to Wimbledon as strawberries and cream, and the annual Henley Royal Regatta on the River Thames would not float without it.
