The Great British Summer

by Nicole Trilivas

Between the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, everyone worldwide needs to break out their inner Brit for summer 2012.

Can’t get into the pomp and dazzle?

Then you my friend, need a Pimm’s and lemonade–the most summery and British-y drink I know!

Basically all you need is one part Pimm’s, and three parts lemonade (British lemonade tends to be fizzy so add some soda water too, if you like). Then pack it with fruits like strawberries, lemons, oranges, limes, apples, and fresh mint. It’s also terribly British to add some cucumbers.

Now fly your Union Jack and be merry!
