Pimm’s Cup

pimm's cup

Are you a fan of herbal cocktails? Then you must like Pimm’s No.1 liqueur. Haven’t tried it? You should! It’s a gin based liquor from England that’s infused with citrus, herbs & spices. It’s the latest addition to my libation rotation! Thanks for getting me into it, Michael!

I like that I don’t need a bunch of ingredients to get my buzz on.

Ginger ale? Check. Ice? Check. Lemon? Check. Pimm’s No.1? Check. Cucumber? Oh that’s right. I ate it.

I followed the recipe off the back of the bottle so here it is for you. You should put a cucumber slice in yours, make it fancy and legit. I’ve seen recipes that include mint, orange slices & strawberries. That’s extra fancy, but it just means fruit is gonna be banging you in the mouth. If you’re drunk enough that could be fun…

And we’re off!

Here’s what you need. This is it.

Add ice to your tall glass, then ginger ale. Pour some Pimm’s in a shot glass. Don’t spill it like me.

yeah i spilled it

Squeeze a little lemon in there. Add a lemon slice.

Look at how fancy Casey’s cup is. Now mix up your drink!

Cheers, mate!

Pimm’s Cup

(makes 1 drink)

  • 1 1/2 oz Pimm’s No. 1 Cup
  • 4 oz. ginger ale

Fill a tall glass halfway with ice. Add ginger ale & top with the Pimm’s. Add a slice of lemon & cucumber. Have fun. Drink responsibly or something.

***Shutterbean Notes***

- In my Pimm’s research, I found that the traditional English version of this drink uses lemonade instead of ginger ale. Let’s try it, shall we?

    Oh I adore a Pimm’s cocktail. I am actually so glad summer is rolling around so I can load my Pimm’s cup with freshness!

    I love a classy Friday night libation. Tomorrow morning when I feel like death, at least I’ll know I was classy tonight! Happy weekend:)

      Stay classy! Drink a bloody Mary for breakfast.

    The traditional English version is made with English lemonade – which is carbonated, so it’s best to use 7-Up unless you have a British food shop nearby, in which case, definitely try it!

    The English way is Pimm & Lemonade with strawberries, cucumber, lemon and mint in a nice big jug for everyone to share. But I will give this one a go! Looks delicious!

    Hubby and I love Pimm’s, especially the saying “Oh look; it’s Pimm’s o’clock.” We make our Pimm’s cup with lemonade, which may be a bad choice because I down those bad boys far too quickly.
