Straight up: 2 parts gin, 2 parts red vermouth, 1 part triple sec, dash of crème de cassis
Green meanie: 2 parts gin, 2 parts red vermouth, 1 part blue curaçao. Strangely this will end up the colour of Fairy Liquid, hence the name.
Purple meanie (a rare but interesting variation!): 2 parts gin, 2 parts orange vermouth, 1 part blue curaçao, dash of crème de cassis
Mix together. Serve in the proportion one part Pimms to three parts lemonade, bitter lemon, or San Pellegrino limonata over lots of ice and mint leaves, and a fresh fruit garnish.
This tastes of holidays in France to me…
