Pimm’s Cocktail

fullsizeoutput_76.jpeg

A lovely light cocktail for an Easter brunch or spring gathering, Pimm’s is a British liqueur made from gin, vermouth, and spices. It is traditionally mixed with cucumber, strawberries, mint, orange slices, and lemon lime soda for a refreshing cocktail on a warm day. I first encountered Pimm’s at the Chelsea Flower Show in London, where you can walk through the grounds  touring beautiful garden displays, with Pimm’s sold by the pitcher to be enjoyed as you stroll through the beautiful exhibits.

The Perfect Pimm’s Cocktail:

  • Highball Glass
  • 1/3 Cup Pimm’s No. 1
  • 2/3 Cup Lemon Lime Soda
  • Mix with sliced oranges, strawberries, cucumber, & fresh mint

Serve over ice.
