A glass of Pimm’s and lemonade epitomises the English countryside. As well as being delicious in drinks try using Pimm’s in a dessert – like this quick and easy boozy Pimm’s & strawberry syllabub.
I love syllabub! I really really really love syllabub – firstly it sounds so pretty and delicious; Syllabub sounds like the name of the dashing heroine in a oh-so-charming 1920’s novel. In another life I was called Syllabub, was the first of my crowd to oh-so-daringly have my hair cut into a sharp bob. You get the drift… Syllabub, syllabub, syllabub!
Secondly syllabub is delicious and thirdly it is also stupidly easy to make, and if you serve it heaped into wine glass it looks so impressive. It is the perfect summer pudding for either a dinner party, or for a romantic dinner.
To make this Pimm’s dessert inspired syllabub you simply cut up some strawberries, marinade them in Pimm’s. Whip the cream, adding some of the strawberry infused Pimm’s then layer it all into a glass. Chill, serve and bask in the glory of your friends compliments. Deliciously quick, easy and above all Fuss Free!
