Classic English summer ingredients make these boozy pots a garden party must-have.


  • 500g fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1 tbsp artificial sweetener
  • 60ml Pimm's
  • A small handful of fresh mint leaves, cut into strips, plus 4 whole springs to decorate


  1. Put the halved strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle over the sweetener. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.
  2. Uncover the strawberries, pour over the Pimm's and tuck the strips of mint between the berries. Cover and leave to marinate for about 1 hour.
  3. Divide the strawberry mixture between 4 colourful cups or dessert glasses and decorate with the springs of mint.

Tip: Hulling a strawberry means removing the green leafy top. Using a small, sharp knife held at an angle, cut a circle around the leafy bit and into the flesh. Discard the hull, then wipe the strawberry with damp kitchen paper.
