As if Pimm's wasn't good enough, the company have now decided to bring out a new flavour

Pimm's, the holy drink of summer and the thing we look forward to most at BBQs, is bringing out a new flavour and we can't bloody wait.

The classic Pimm's No. 1 is the brand's most popular gin-based drink. And the new flavour - Pimm's No. 6 Vodka Cup - is the vodka-based counterpart.

1) Dairy-free pancake recipe

Makes 8**Ingredients:125g plain flour1 egg300ml coconut milk1 tablespoon of oilMethod:**1) Put the flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg in the middle and pour in a quarter of the milk. Use an electric or balloon whisk to thoroughly combine the mixture. 2) Once you have a paste, mix in another quarter and once lump-free, mix in the remaining milk. Leave to rest for 20 mins. Stir again before using. 3) Heat a small, non-stick frying pan with a splash of oil. When hot, pour a small amount of the mixture into the pan and swirl around to coat the base – you want a thin layer. Cook for a few mins until golden brown on the bottom, then turn over and cook until golden on the other side. Repeat until you have used all the mixture, stirring the mixture in between pancakes and adding more oil for frying as necessary. Pile the pancakes up between sheets of baking parchment or cook to order. Serve with the pancake filling of choice!Recipe by BBC Good Food

2) Gluten-free pancake recipe

Makes 6**Ingredients:200g plain gluten free flour - we recommend Doves Farm 2 eggs 500ml milk1 tablespoon oilMethod:**1) Put the flour, egg and half the milk into a large bowl or jug. Beat to a smooth paste then stir in the remaining milk to make a thin batter. 2) Refrigerate the batter for up to 12 hours – otherwise it's ready to go. Lightly oil a frying pan so that the oil just covers the surface and get the pan nice and hot. Stir the batter then spoon or pour some into the hot pan, rolling it out to the edges. 3) Cook the pancake, loosening the edges, until the base is golden. Turn it over and cook the other side. Repeat until the batter is used. Serve with sweet or savoury fillings of your choice.Recipe by Doves Farm

3) Vegan pancake recipe

Makes 9**Ingredients:150g plain flour 2 tablespoons caster sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 300ml water 1 tablespoon oilMethod:**1) Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Whisk the water and oil together in a small bowl. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet. 2) Stir just until blended; mixture will be lumpy. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry. 3) Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.Recipe by All Recipes

Makes 12**Ingredients:250g plain flour2 teaspoons sugar4 teaspoons baking powder1/4 teaspoon cinnamon475ml milk 2 tablespoons water 3 tablespoons oil 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essenceMethod:**1) Heat a griddle or pan on the stove top. The griddle is ready for pancakes when water dropped on the hot griddle rolls and sizzles. 2) Mix all the dry ingredients. Add the milk, water, oil, and vanilla. Mix well, but don't over stir; a few lumps are okay. 3) Drop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Flip the pancake when bubbles form and begin to pop. Keep the heat medium to medium low; they burn fast.Recipe by Genius Kitchen

Pimm's No. 6 was actually launched way back in the 1960s, but was later discontinued.

However - we've heard news that they're bringing this delightful drink back this year due to popular demand. Yay!

According to the product description, "Pimm's No. 6 is the last of the official Pimm's 'Cups', and is based on vodka and infused with a mix of herbs, spices and fruit.

"For those with a taste for a lighter drink it works excellently as a replacement for the No.1 Cup, mixed with lemonade with a garden of garnish."

The vodka-based drink will taste slightly drier and crispier than the gin version, meaning that your summer cocktails will be EXTRA refreshing. Just what we need!

And at only £19.99, you can't really go wrong can you? Get those jugs at the ready, it's going to be a great summer!

Want to get your hands on it? Get Pimm's No. 6 from Amazon here.
