Pimms No.1 Sangria Cocktail

Pimms No.1 Cocktail  1

I originally developed this recipe for Ballard Design company’s blog howtodecorate.com. It’s a great warm weather cocktail and this recipe makes enough for a large party.

This is a twist on a traditional Pimm’s cocktail which is served at The Napoleon House in New Orleans and is a Mardi Gras tradition. Nothing says it’s party time like a big pitcher of sangria stuffed with colorful fruit! This recipe combines the two recipes into one magical drink fit for a Mardi Gras celebration.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She plafed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know
    this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    It only requires a finger prick blood sample and is
    a in home test kit. These are basically withdrawal symptoms because the body is being
    subjected to natural medicines and the body would take some time to adjust to the new introductions.
    Even if you moved to a deserted island and only
    ate organic fruit and vegetables grown in your own garden,
    you still cannot be sure that you’re completely safe from pollution.

    Looks beautiful, and I love the mason jar glasses. How long would you recommend it to keep for in the refrigerator? A few days? (though I don’t anticipate it being tough to finish on a hot summers day).
