==Pimms and Lemnade Ready to drink Can==
I am partial to a little drink of Pimms and Lemonade from time to time especially at this time of year so when I saw these ready to drink cans on offer in Morrison's a good while back I decided to give it a try and popped it into my trolley.
Having had a the first ready to drink can of Vodka and cola and finding it to be really disgusting I wasn't expecting much from this Pimms and lemonade one and I was right.
The can is a fair size at 250 ml and the alcohol content is 5.4% which should be only enough to feel a very slight buzz. The fact that it is in a ring pull type can makes it easy to carry about and perfect to take out on an outdoor barbecue which is what I did with my can.
The RRP of a can is around the £1.74 pence depending on where you buy it from but at the time I bought it there was a special off where you could buy two cans for £2 so at £1 for a can I didn't think you could go too wrong.
However the taste of this can really wasn't anywhere near as nice as when you mix your own and I put it down to the lemonade that is used. The fruity taste of the Pimms did seem to be masked somewhat by the sweet and fake taste of the lemonade which was far too strong for my liking and really did overpower the classic taste of Pimms which I usually really like.
The can did keep the fizziness a good deal and this was a nice aspect as on the whole the drink did seem quite refreshing especially on a warm day when the can was really cold. However the taste of the drink really did hinder the whole experience and this is really the reason why you would buy a drink like this, to enjoy the taste.
It is certainly not a can of drink I will be buying again and although very easy to take out and it being very convenient I found that I just didn't enjoy the taste and for that reason I will only be awarding a poor score of 1 out of 5 stars and I certianly wouldn't be recommending it to anyone!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: not a great buy
