Courtside Cocktails - The Summer Edition

 

 

Nothing defines summer like the 4th of July, but America’s holiday also coincides with the grand slam of British tennis – Wimbledon. What better way to enjoy the birth of our nation than sipping a Pimm’s Cup - it’s the perfect companion for watching tennis or enjoying fireworks!

 

The quintessential Pimm’s Cup is a refreshing concoction of Pimm’s No. 1, lemonade, or lemon-lime soda (if you prefer carbonation), fruit slices, mint and cucumber.

It’s the perfect Courtside Cocktail all summer long!

We think a Pimm’s Cup pairs well with our Chrissy Dress (shown above) - chic and comfy for on-and-off the court! It’s the perfect dress for a 4th of July Round Robin or Backyard BBQ and Fireworks!
