After five or six you'll stop wondering about your 5 a day and come to the conclusion that who cares. Either that or you will loose the ability to count. Either way you win!

I've shown Pimm's to the door.

This weekend, a guest brought a bottle of Sipsmith's Summer Cup, infused with Earl Grey, Lemon Verbena and Cucumber.

I've taken a new lover. So there.

Ahhh that's implied by Wiki, but not actually a Pimm's product.
Whilst Pimm's only officially ever made Fruit Cups numbering 1-6 in recent years, various bartenders have started to experiment with their own Pimm's-style drinks using different bases. A popular spirit to use as "Pimm's No. 7" is Tequila although Cups based on Bourbon, Absinthe and Islay Whisky also exist.[7]
