A Lover Of All The Senses: There Are More Than Five, You Know

I’m glad at least some people have access to medical marijuana joints.

The Morning Lim No. 1 - a Summer Saturday Brunch Cocktail mixed by Anita

The Morning Lim No. 1 is a cocktail I threw together this morning. I had just juiced 6 big limes, and was wondering how to use some of it in a recipe. There was a half bottle of Pimm’s No. 1 in the fridge, along with an opened bottle of lemon-lime sports drink leftover by my daughter. I decided to look up these Wiki sites for a bit of brainstorming mixed drink ideas…



…and I learned that Lim is Arabic and French for lime,and No.1 is English for Pimm’s. My family bloodline is a mix that includes French and English with historic ties to New Orleans, so I’m inspired to concoct a sud temps été petit déjeuner (southern summertime breakfast) cocktail recipe to replace the usual Bloody Mary and Mimosa options offered at brunches. Bonus: This 9 ounce drink has only 118 calories!

Using what I had on hand, this is what I made:

Morning Lim No.1

2 oz. shots (2 parts) Pimm’s No. 1

1 oz. shot (1 part) fresh jus de citron vert (lime juice)

2 oz. shots (2 parts) yellow Gatorade

4 oz. shots (4 parts) filtered water

Serve: Into a big goblet, pour over 4 parts (4 cubes) ice.

Swish to mix.
