Anyone for Pimm’s?

You probably already know about Pimm’s because you’re far more cultured than I am. In the past week I have fallen in love with Pimm’s and lemonade (aka lemon-lime or Sprite).
From Wikipedia

Pimm’s No. 1 Cup is the essential ingredient in the Pimm’s Cup, which mixes one part Pimm’s No.1 with three parts lemonade or lemon soda (sometimes ginger ale or Indian tonic water), ice cubes, borage leaves (nowadays a wedge of cucumber is usually substituted for this ingredient), mint leaves and slices of lemon, orange and strawberry.

Pimm’s is listed on VA’s ABC site, so we’ll see if I can find it in the US. If not, I’m starting an importing business.

While discussing with a friend the possibilities of playing croquet (another new *love it*) on the Mall and/ or the Lawn at UVA:

me: oh, and we’d need to import some Pimms
Friend: hehe wooooo pimms
me: love that stuff
Friend: heh yeah it’s cute
me: cute?
Friend: yeah you got to england and fell in love with cultural booze

Well, duh.
