While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge await their bundle of joy, you can prepare by choosing a celebratory drink with which to toast the royal event. Of course, champagne would be in order, but, why not try something new? Buzzfeed Food posted (from theginpalace.com) twenty-four Pimm’s recipes, including both drinks and treats. You may want to start with a Classic Pimm’s Cup, for inspiration:

Pimm’s No. 1 Cup
Diet Spite/7up/or any Lemon-Lime Soda of choice, also good with ginger beer

It’s Pimm’s O’Clock Somewhere!

Whether or not you’ve been swept up in the royal baby hysteria, you might as well use it as an excuse to buy a bottle of Pimm’s No. 1. A gin-based liqueur with hints of citrus and spice, it is arguably Britain’s most delicious export.

WARNING: Some of these links contain very British ingredients. Also, some measurements are given in (*brace yourselves*) METRIC!
