Victoria's Notes: From Wikipedia: "A Pimms Cup Cocktail contains Pimm's N1 ( a gin-based beverage) mixed with lemonade or lemon soda, borage* (a wedge of cucumber is usually substituted for this ingredient), mint leaves and slices of lemon, orange and apple."

* Borage is an annual herb, easily be grown from seed, with edible blue or white flowers. The beautiful, delicate flowers taste like cucumber. The flowers can be used on tea sandwiches and in ice cubes, salads and fruit cups and, when candied, are beautiful decorations for cakes and pastries.

However, borage contains a toxic compound which may cause severe liver damage. Frequent use and/or serving large quantities of any part of this herb are not recommended. It should never be given to children, the elderly or anyone with liver problems.
