SUMMER favourite Pimms has once again been named as best alcoholic drink with chunks of vegetable in it.
The drink, which is mixed in a jug with some lemonade, is also the number one thing to be poured into herbaceous borders at summer parties that are trying too hard.
Jane Thompson, fancy party editor of Tatler, said: Nothing says summer like some gin-based cough medicine served over crushed ice, celery and baked yams.
I love being served first from the jug, thereby getting all of the ice and all the vegetables to myself.
Tom Logan, from Peterborough, said: For me, its usually tomatoes, onions, sprouts and an unwashed carrot.
He added: I go to a lot of summer parties thrown by tosspots so I always remember to take a plastic bag with me. I can then decant the vegetables and take them home. Saves me about ten quid a week.
Francesca Johnson, from Hampstead, said: Pimms is really for people who want to live in Hampstead.
All the right parties serve their guests Tennents Super, cheekily presented in the original can.
