Pimm’s Cup

Also known as a Pimm's & lemonade, it’s the official drink of Wimbledon. Does it get any classier than tennis whites? Pimm’s® No. 1 cup is a British liquor based on gin that is light and can even be bought in cans already mixed with lemonade. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find the cans in the states so I made this recipe for those hot summer days. When I drink this I basically feel like I could be a British royal.



2 ounces Pimm’s No. 1 cup®

6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 ounces simple syrup

cucumber, thinly sliced, as needed

strawberry, sliced, as needed

orange slices, as needed

mint sprigs, for garnish



Add the Pimm’s, simple syrup, and lemon to a highball glass filled with ice. Stir and pile in the slices of strawberry, orange and cucumber.

Garnish with a sprig of mint.


Serves 1.


*To make this recipe non-alcoholic substitute cold-brewed black tea for the Pimm's.
