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.

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


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

***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?
