Re: Where can I buy Pimms in Zurich?

Search for "pimms" here and you will find some of the threads below. I'm pretty sure I saw it in Globus once though.

Re: Where can I buy Pimms in Zurich?

Thanks forthe reply, Grumpy. I have searched but couldnt find reference in any of the threads to anyone buying a few bottles in ZH.

have none of the 90+ people who've looked @ this thread ever bought a bottle of Pimms in ZH??

This party is bearing down on me like a meteor and as there'll be many poms in attendance, must have Pimms.

Grumpy shall we barter? I'll take some of your toe-fluff off your hands in return for a couple bottles of Pimms. deal?


thanks and all the best

Re: Where can I buy Pimms in Zurich?

In case the above shops are sold out (ok, not very likely..) You can also buy at the delicatesse shop at ZH airport next to the post office (area P3).

Although not in Zurich, this place sells Pimms for those of you who live near Baden.

I typed in Pimms into the search function and found this. As I suggested, it is in Globus.

Re: Where can I buy Pimms in Zurich?

many thanks all who posted to help a bloke out.

3 bottles copped in Drinks 'o the world in Shopville, and I got enough back from a one-er for a tinny uv Farceters!

luv & xxx
Freebooter


ps, Globus didnt have any. a funny aside: whilst I was down there one of the shop assistants was on the blower to a high roller who was ordering whisky - Glenndronach I thinlk, from the assistant's attempts to repeat it whilst scanning the shelves. that's a pricey Speyside single malt if Im not mistaken and would set him back 100 quid if it cost him a tanner. Forget it, mate, ask him if he wants a Laphroaig, lovely smokey Islay and he'll have enough left to spend something onthe girlfriend. not interested........




pppppps, speaking of Farceters & tinnies.............. anybody wahtching the CRICKET??
**** me the Ozzers are 130 for 7 still short of the follow-on!! Broad has a 5-fer already.
I love Australisan really but.............Get in! Yes! **** me sideways Prior snaffled that ! another has just
bit the dust 130-8. and Freddie hasn't done jack. we're goin to win this thing!!!
ok they've avoided the follow-on but.... yes! yes! effing yes!!!

Not in Neuchâtel

25CHF in Globus... here's hoping they decide to send it to Denner in Neuch!

Re: Where can I buy Pimms in Zurich?

Make your own, it kicks @ss on the now pretty weak pre-made stuff (years ago it was much stronger). You need a bottle of gin, a bottle of vermouth and a bottle of cointreau. mix. there's your base. add lemonade, fruit, mint, cucumber, etc in the glass. obviously use half bottes or quarter depending on requirements but those ratios work just fine.
