A popular cocktail served at weddings, the ‘Pimm’s cup’ makes it as our cocktail of the week.
There are many versions of Pimm’s Cup. This is my version:
2 Highball glasses
2 oz Pimm’s No. 1
5 oz 7Up/Soda
1 twist of lemon
1 twist of cucumber peel
Handful of mint leaves
Hard ice cubes
Pour Pimm’s over ice cubes in a large highball glass. Fill glass with 7Up/Soda. Add twist of lemon, twist of cucumber peel, lemon slices, strawberry slices, orange slices and stir. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
Add berries like blueberry and raspberry for a sweeter Pimm’s cup.
Half a teaspoon of Eldeflower syrup can be added to give the Pimm’s cup a distinct taste.
Serve this cocktail in different glasses for a cool modern twist. Mason jars are a popular choice for events.
