If serving immediately:

We love to drink Pimm’s Punch fresh!

Grab a beautiful glass and fill it with ice. Ladle in the punch, making sure to scoop up a few of the fruity jewels (the cucumber and fruit slices). Garnish with the remaining mint and enjoy! For the utmost whimsy drink your punch from vintage miss-matched glasses.

If preparing ahead of time:

If preparing ahead of time for a sweet Spring picnic, divide the punch between six seal-able mason jars and store in the fridge until you’re ready to head off on your adventure!

Make sure you bring ice and mint, for garnish! Jars are great for this (they make great re-useable and sustainable containers!) Divide between drinks right before serving!



Once you have a drink in your hand don’t forget to snap a picture and tag @bohemian.traders and @vegetarianventures on instagram!
