The Pimm’s cup is a refreshing summertime drink that’s been around since the mid-1800s. The cocktail recipe is easy, mixing the namesake liqueur with lemonade and adding a garnish of cucumber, fruits, and mint. Also called “Pimm’s Original,” the thirst-quenching cooler is very popular in the United Kingdom. It’s often enjoyed while watching cricket or the tennis matches of Wimbledon but is perfect for any occasion.
The featured liqueur of this simple drink is Pimm’s No. 1, a spice- and fruit-flavored spirit with a gin base. Adding a mixer as subtle as lemonade enhances its character and turns it into a stimulating and light adult beverage.
