Scotlands national tennis treasure has been putting us through our paces!  Phew we need a drink after last nights game!1

If this weekends tennis fixtures games are going to get you hot under your polo shirts may we suggest a refreshing drink from our Wimbledon menu at the Aston Hotel Dumfries?

Double Fault – Large Gordons Gin and Tonic served over crushed ice and Lime wedge £7.50

Murrays Mound – A piled up portion of Scottish Strawberries and freshly whipped cream – £3.95

So where did Pimms come from? Usually credited to James Pimm, a shellfish monger from Kent who opened his famous Pimm’s Oyster Bar in London in 1823. Using gin, quinine and his own secret mixture of herbs, Pimm created a drink that he served as an aid to digestion.

Make your own at home? You will need – 3 parts lemonade to one part Pimm’s, 1 slice orange, 1 slice lemon, 2 slices cucumber, 1 sliced strawberry, sprig of mint.

Then mix it like this – Pour Pimm’s into a glass half filled with ice. Add fruit and fill the glass with more ice. Top with lemonade, lightly stir and serve. For an alternative to lemonade, try ginger ale.
