Pimm's Cup



With record-breaking temps this summer, cool off with a refreshing cocktail: the Pimm's Cup. Pimm's No. 1 is a gin based liqueur created by James Pimm in 19th century London. Pimm owned an oyster bar and would offer this botanical tonic to guests. Pimm's Cup was first served at Wimbledon in 1971 and has since become a classic at the iconic sporting event.




 

Pimm's Cup

Makes 1 drink


2 ounce Pimm's No. 1

1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice

Ginger ale

Mint, cucumber, strawberries, lemon wedges, for serving


Fill a tall glass with ice. Add the Pimm's and lemon juice and top with ginger ale. Add garnishes and enjoy.


 

There are several variations of this recipe. I prefer using ginger ale, but you could use lemonade, ginger beer, or lemon-lime soda (such as Sprite).



 

Thanks for reading! I haven't been posting much recently. A busy summer and an upcoming move haven't left much time for cooking. I'm hoping to get back to some type of schedule in the next few weeks.

This sounds a real treat, as the Brits might say. I regret not availing myself to a Pimm’s Cup while in London where it was conceived! So now, Pimm’s is on the list for my next liquor run. Ha!
