Summery Pimm’s Cup

Pimm’s Cup is the perfect summer drink. It’s refreshing and filled with lots of bright, summery odds and ends that add textural depth and a lovely fragrance — especially if you go for mint varieties like apple mint.


Have extra citrus and berries in the fridge? You can spend one or two hours baking a summer cake, or five minutes pouring yourself a fresh drink. Which one will it be? Well, follow this Pimm’s Cup recipe
