I had a surplus of strawberries in the fridge (Cooper’s favorite fruit!) and wanted to make a sorbet that I could enjoy (with a cocktail!).  I also wanted sorbet but didn’t want to leave the house. Maybe I just didn’t want to wear pants.

The Pimm’s brings out the strawberries perfectly. They’re sweet and summery! The color is something else too! In this rendition, I cut up fresh strawberries, added Pimm’s  liqueur a few scoops of the Strawberry Pimm’s Sorbet and a few slices of cucumber to make it more like a Pimm’s Cup. You could add a little ginger ale or lemon soda and make it a Strawberry Pimm’s Cup Float!  Also– you can make Pimm’s Cup Popsicles. I stood over the sink and devoured two bowls of this sorbet. That means it’s good, yo!

Let’s get our ingredients together:

Strawberry Pimm’s Sorbet

serves 4

  • 2 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled & stemmed (about 1.25 lbs.)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Pimm’s liqueur, plus more for serving
  • sliced strawberries, for serving
  • sliced cucumbers, for serving

Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, until sugar has dissolved, about 3-4 minutes. Remove simple syrup off heat and set aside to cool.

Place strawberries in a blender with lemon juice, and Pimm’s liqueur. Drizzle simple syrup on top and blend mixture until smooth.  Transfer mixture to an ice-cream maker and process/ freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Put finished sorbet in a freezer-proof container, cover and freeze until firm, about 2-3 hours.

To serve, divide strawberries between serving bowls and drizzle Pimm’s on top. Scoop sorbet onto the Pimm’s infused strawberries and top with additional strawberries and sliced cucumbers.
