Cocktail Time: Pimm’s Cup!

I’m not a big fan of alcohol, and so my cocktail culture is very tiny. However, a few weeks ago I went for drinks with colleagues and discovered Pimm’s cups. Wow! So light and refreshing: they are clearly a perfect summer drink. Since spring is finally here, it is totally okay to kick-start the season with a nice drink, right? Plus it’s British, so why not?

Here is what you need for each drink:

  • 1/4 cup Pimm’s No. 1
  • 1 cup 7-Up or ginger ale
  • ice (I didn’t have any, so I used frozen cranberries instead: worked out well!)
  • a few slices of cucumber
  • a few mint leaves
  • a few berries (I used blackberries, but strawberries or raspberries also work well)
  • a slice of lime, lemon or orange

Here is what you do:

  1. Fill your glass with ice. Add the cucumber, mint, berries and lime slice.
  2. Mix in the Pimm’s and 7-Up. Give a quick stir and enjoy!

This is a great drink if you are looking for something fresh and customizable with what you have on hand. Pimm’s has a great herbal flavour which makes this drink perfect for a warm day. Be careful though, there is gin here: this might turn your head a little! Let me know how you like to prepare your Pimm’s cups, or what’s your favourite drink!
