All over the country people are organising their own version of the Patron's Lunch, and you can do the same. You don't need to invite the 10,000 – just the neighbours and some friends, then put up some bunting and serve iced-cold Pimm's. Mix up the classic Pimm's and Lemonade
cocktail with lemonade, fresh mint, plus cucumber and strawberry slices to garnish. Happy Birthday to you, Ma'am!
As we're in a royal celebratory mood, what could be more appropriate than the Pimm's Royale
, a version of the classic Kir? As you crack open the bubbly, mix with Pimm's for a truly regal drink. You're sure to get the royal seal of approval from your guests.
You can always troop the colour with Pimm's Punch
– it's Pimm's plus a festival of fruit: apple juice, orange juice, passion fruit juice, lemon juice and raspberries. Splendid looking and with superior flavour, the punch stops you being tied to your cocktail shaker – instead you can mingle with one's guests just like the Queen.
So decorate your picnic tables and polish off your glasses to offer your birthday wishes. It’s time for the ultimate Pimm's O'Clock!
