Hurray - Wimbledon! The time of the year when the Pimm’s begins to flow and it becomes acceptable to eat copious amounts of strawberries! In fact, 28,000 kg of strawberries are consumed during the tournament with over 7000 litres of fresh cream – woah. Source: Wimbledon
To celebrate the start of the tournament, put together a luxurious Wimbledon themed gift tray and combine a selection of traditional summer treats.
Include the following indulgent treats:
The essential summer drink - It’s always Pimm’s O’Clock when Wimbledon is on!
Well, it would be rude not to. Pour the Pimm’s and top up with champagne to make a ‘Pimm’s Royale’ cocktail.
Strawberries & Cream
A Wimbledon inspired gift basket would not be complete without fresh strawberries and cream. Did you know - to gain ultimate tasting experience, strawberries should be eaten in under 3 minutes and cream should be added at the ratio of 1 tablespoon to 2 strawberries. Who knew it was that technical? Source: Telegraph
Scones, Clotted Cream & Jam
Incredibly moreish and scrumptious! Be warned, it’s very difficult to say no to a scone topped with fresh cream and jam. Mmmmm.
Finish your Afternoon Tea tray with the recipients favourite thirst quencher, whether it black tea, green tea or fruit tea!
