Friday cocktail: summer cup

Friday cocktail: summer cup
The Chelsea Flower Show is upon us, marking the start 
of the social season – cue posh folk guffawing and falling over a lot. Don your best blazer, adopt a braying tone and join them with this archetypal upper-crust tipple.

Simple summer cup
1. For years it’s been Pimm’s or nothing, but there are other brands on the market to play with now. Put some ice cubes in a wine glass, then add 50ml Sipsmith Summer Cup, a herby, cucumber-y, gin-based concoction, from Majestic and Waitrose. Top up with a good quality lemonade such as Fever-Tree or Fentimans – or, if you prefer it less sweet, soda water.
2. Let’s not go overboard with the fruit salad. Just pop in a wedge of lemon and you’re away. Down the hatch, wot!
