OT: Pimm's
 
Was wondering... Does a jug of Pimm's with the fruit count as one of my 5 a day?

At least one, I'd say!

Strawberry, cucumber, mint ... I make it three.

I think you should have two just to be on the safe side.

squeeler Jun 11, 12 12:48 pm

Clearly yes, although the fruit will not please your dentist. Compensate by using diet lemonade, and of course, never Sprite.

Hi,

With lemonade that would be 4!:)

If in doubt, a couple of screwdrivers will bring you up to the required level (avoid Bloody Marys as the salt content of tomato juice can be dangerously high).

Sangria is good as well - wine is just grape juice, brandy is extra strong grape juice (so better for you) and there's fruit as well!

One has to ask "Which Pimm's, Sir?"

I recall a bar in Singapore in the days of Empire where they had the full set … did it go to #8 or #9?
I got confused after #5 :D

I'm sure Eastern Airways used to have Winter Pimms on the trolley.

And of course, let's not forget the inimitable "Turbo Pimms". No worries about the choice of lemonade there...

There's more than one? I am showing my age! :p

Originally Pimm's only went from 1-6
1 gin based
2 scotch whisky based
3 brandy based
4 rum based
5 rye whiskey based
6 vodka based...

Only 1 and 6 are currently produced...6 in very small quantities...:D

If it counts as a fruit I was dangerously malnourished while staying at the four seasons Mumbai last week. They had no Pimms at their rooftop bar! I was simply shocked given India's commonwealth status!

Silly boy, Pimm's is your 5 a day.

That is, if you have a jug a day.

In fact 3 has been rebranded as "Winter Pimms" and is fairly widely available in London

(not sure about the regions ;))
