This is a classic English summertime drink and a wonderful way to start a barbecue. It celebrates the best things about an English summer: strawberries, cool cucumbers and the slight bitterness of the Pimm’s — or is that just the taste left in the Poms’ mouths from losing at the cricket!

Pimm’s is one of those drinks that goes with most food, but its cooling effect particularly suits spicy dishes. I like to have it with Peri-peri chicken.
