Forest Fruit & Ginger Pimms - Bakemas Day 9

I’m kind of surprised I’m back here again, second Saturday in a row and I have another drink recipe.
I don’t know why but I seem to like coming up with ideas for alcoholic drinks even though I don’t drink them, I know it doesn’t make any sense. Do I feel a little bit like George from George’s marvellous medicine?...maybe a little...although I’m not trying to blow off anyone’s head...and I definitely didn’t add shoe polish or pig pills to this. Do you remember that book; I’m pretty sure that medicine would do more than blow a little old lady’s head off! Okay scratch that, maybe it’s more like being a cross between Willy Wonka and George.

Anyway, back on topic!

Pimms is one of the drinks my mum quite enjoys so I thought it would be nice to add a little winter into it and it’s especially fitting seeing as my granddad often buys my mum a bottle of pimms for Christmas. I kept this pretty simple because I like when you can switch up a drink and not have to go out and buy loads of extra ingredients that’ll just end up getting shoved in the back of a cupboard or the fridge and forgotten about. If you want to make a non alcoholic version of this you can omit the pimms and just stick to the apple juice, ginger beer and blackberries which would be a great option for the kids or the non drinkers.
You will need
1 shot/30ml-45ml/2-3 tbsp pimms
1 shot/30ml-45ml/2-3 tbsp apple juice
300ml/1¼ cups ginger beer
Blackberries, fresh or frozen
Apple slices for garnish

Pour all the liquid ingredients together in a glass over ice. Top with Blackberries and finely sliced apples.

Serves 1

Note: to add more of the blackberry flavour you can crush the blackberries in the glass to bring out the juices and if you’re using frozen blackberries you can omit the ice.
