Let’s learn how to make a Pimm’s Cup recipe with Pimm’s No. 1, a herbal lightly bitter liqueur that pairs great with summer time fruit. This drink is a big warm weather summer time smash hit.
The Pimm’s cup is a simple combination of fruits which often include strawberry, mint, lemon, cucumber and orange slices. You basically build a Pimm’s Cup cocktail by putting all of them in a cup together and combining with Pimm’s No. 1 and either ginger ale or lemon-lime soda (like Sprite or 7 Up).
You really can’t make a wrong Pimm’s Cup recipe if you’re following the basic rules of: fruit + pimm’s no. 1 makes pleasure. The cucumber and mint really help bring out the summer time cocktail fun while the Pimm’s inclusion of strawberry and orange help sweeten it up a tad.
You can re-use the fruit for your second Pimm’s Cup, not too unlike reusing the fruit from a sangria for a second serving. The Pimm’sCup cocktail is often requested in New Orleans and NYC when it’s warm out, so bartenders may want to be aware of how to make the pimm’s cup if they’re at a bar carrying Pimm’s No. 1 because, as far as we can tell, the Pimm’s Cup is the main focus of the spirit.
