This punch is perfect for both the holidays and in the heat of the summer. Enjoy!

    Recipe: Pimm’s Cup

    To me, the week of the Fourth of July is not only filled with fireworks, barbecues, and picnics, but also with avidly watching Wimbledon.

While watching, I love to enjoy that quintessential English summertime beverage, the Pimm's Cup. Below is the classic Pimm's recipe for your imbibing pleasure!
