Pimm’s Cup Cocktail Recipe

A refreshing summertime drink that dates back to the 1800s, Pimm’s cups are a local favorite in the UK. The namesake liqueur is diluted with lemonade in this easy cocktail recipe, and cucumbers, fruits, and mint are added to the mix. The British drink is known as “Pimm’s Original” and is very popular there. The drink is often enjoyed while watching sports such as cricket and tennis at Wimbledon but can be taken at any time.

Pimm’s No. 1 is the featured liqueur in this simple, refreshing drink. A spirit with a gin base that is flavored with spice and fruit. Lemonade is a natural mixer that enhances the character of gin and turns it into a light adult beverage with a stimulating taste. The recipe makes plenty of cocktail by the glass, but you can easily increase it to fill a pitcher as well. Brunch drinks and tea drinks made from this fruit juice are excellent alternatives for lunch.
