Pimms Cup Cocktail Recipe

Pimms Cup-2web
Are you planning a Weekend Social? Or a nice picnic style outdoor brunch,, a polo game? I sampled this cocktail for the first time a few years ago at a polo launch party at Alton Lane. My friend, who’s a fabulous producer Matt Paco invited me to his friends store where they were celebrating another year of polo. I don’t play or ride horses, but I sure do admire drawing them. And I have a soft spot for preppy boys.

I had crushes on so many during my teenage years- until I went to art school and I started liking artsy types. There’s a classic allure to a man wearing a felt 150% wool blazer, pink chinos, and pocket square. If he knows about the arts and fashion, and food…I’m all ears.
