Top tip for making Very berry Pimms
Jazz up summery drinks by adding small halved strawberries, raspberries and mint leaves or tiny viola or herb flowers to sections of an ice cube tray. Top up with cold water, freeze until solid then press out of ice cube tray and serve in a small bowl or add straight to a drink
