I discovered PIMM’S on a recent trip to Britain. It was love at first sip:) Since our return to the States, I have played around with different variations of this fanciful spirit. I think I have discovered my new summertime sipper…PIMM’S Passion! (BTW- I coined the name for this very special drink as you will not find it anywhere on the PIMM’S website>)
Every spring I host a happy hour of sorts for some girlfriends all of whom have been teachers of one of our kids at one time or another. These ladies have been a huge support and sounding board during our kids’ elementary school careers and beyond as well as a super fun group of gals to laugh and spend time with outside of the confines of school.
This drink is dedicated to my fabulous friends…Sarah and Sarah, April, Julie, Darcy, and Tammi 😉 And an additional Salud! to Alicia who was there when this happy hour began all those years ago and who will ALWAYS be there in spirit. We miss you and tip our glass to you, Alicia.
