Description

The Pimm’s Cup is refreshing and bubbly, featuring Pimm’s No. 1 and sparkling lemonade! This popular British cocktail is great for easy entertaining.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cucumber slices
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) Pimm’s No 1
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) sparkling lemonade (purchased or homemade), ginger beer or ginger ale
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lemon juice, optional*
  • For the garnish: more cucumber slices, lemon wedge, fresh mint

Instructions

  1. Place a cucumber slice in the bottom of a mixing glass and muddle it several times.
  2. Add the Pimms No 1 and a handful of ice. Stir until cold, then strain into an ice-filled highball glass.
  3. Top with the sparkling lemonade or ginger beer. Garnish with a lemon wedge, mint leaves and additional cucumber slices.

Notes

*This is optional, but adds a nice zip for people who like tangy drinks. You can easily omit, or just squeeze in a bit from a lemon wedge.
