    Now...I cant stand Pimms, I think its the most vile drink ever (think you get the picture!) Lol.

    My Consultant on Tuesday made this in class and I must admit it was lovely! Dont turn your nose up until you try it is all I can say!

    1 2 ltr bottle diet lemonade
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    strawberries and cucumber slices

    Add the blasamic vinegar to the pop and chill with the strawberries and cucumber.

    It really is lovely and refreshing!

    its lovely but I'm never sure how much Pimms to put in or how many syns.Its the only alcohol my body doesn't react against but only if its a tiny amount diluted like you have.(allergy)I like sound of this- alovely alternative.Thanks

    I love Pimms, so I tried this version of it when I first heard about it last summer.

    It is OK, quite nice in fact, but nothing like the real thing!!!

    (But then, if you don't like the real thing that would be an advantage!)

    I've just read this, rushed into the kitchen and poured a glass of lemonade with an unmeasured glug of balsamic vinegar...I can't believe how good this tastes! It has a lovely foamy top.
    I think I'm addicted already! Thanks x
