Blackberry and Elderflower Pimms Rather Lush Slush

Blackberry and Elderflower Pimms Sorbet

I declare this a Pimms summer ( interspersed with the odd deluge of rain, as ever ).

A Pimmsie whimsy has arrived this year and its based on the Old No 6 Vodka cup.

Pimms used to be sold from 1-6 in the more swanky good old days.  The most popular currently is the no 1 cup, served with all the trimmings and some sharp, icy cold, old-fashioned lemonade over here please!

I so glad I bought a couple of their premade tins before committing to a large bottle.

It’s a tad saccharin sweet for my taste and  as such needed to be repourposed.

Into the ice cream machine it went,  with some elderflower cordial to sharpen things up a bit. I also added a dash of St Germain Elderflower liqueur and about 20 large, well washed brambles from the garden.  Commercial ones would be just fine I’m sure.

Still sweet I added the juice of half a lime and it balanced well

If the truth be told I found it became incredibly moorish, it’s a complete mystery is that it’s all disappeared!

Enjoy! x

  1. Are those brambles in the picture? Like blackberries or like loganberries? I don’t think we have Pimm’s here. Boo. This sounds so fruity and refreshing!
