I'm making a ~30 Litre bin full for a BBQ, there's no chance I'm buying the real article.

your looking at 7.80 a litre for "Austins summer drink" not sure how that compares of the price of pimms?

edit: think tesco is about £13 per liter for branded pimms

a friend has these and they're very good

There's loads of ones on sale in hmv at the moment, best go to one of the bigger hmvs. All the speakers are plugged in so you can try them.
ending up just buying the x-minis, if anyone's after something similar i strongly recommend them

Does if you drink it strong enough! Throw in some gin and a shitload of mint and it's champion.

That will be the Gin thats getting you championly pissed.
Funny that, cos Pepsi gets my boy pissed, he just throws it in a bottle of whisky and he gets hammered.

I meant without the gin, I mean it takes about twice as much Pimms to make a good mixer as whisky does.

Dhl is the slowest of all carriers. That will mean its been picked up from Flannels and is now at the depot and will go on the van to be delivered to you tomorrow. (usually mid dayish)
