A Bite of Britain: Pimm's No.1 Cup Cocktail
Serves: 2
Makes two cocktails. Multiply as needed!
  • ½ cup (125 ml) Pimm's
  • 1½ cups (375 ml) lemonade
  • 2 cucumber spears
  • 2 slices orange
  • 2 slices lime
  • 2 slices lemon
  • ¼ apple, diced
  • 2 strawberries, quartered
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint
  • Ice cubes to serve
  1. Divide your fruits, cucumber and mint between the glasses.
  2. Drop a couple of ice cubes into each glass.
  3. In a pitcher, mix the Pimm's with the lemonade.
  4. Pour it into the prepared glasses and serve immediately.
1. As noted above, if you can't find Pimm's, try using sweet (red) vermouth instead. 2. Use as many or as few of the fruit garnishes as you like. Purists say only the mint and citrus is required, but the others are very commonly used. 3. If you're having a party, simply increase the amounts above, using the proportions of 3 parts lemonade to 1 part Pimm's, as indicated on the bottle. 4. Lemonade in the UK is similar to 7-Up or Sprite in the US. Schweppes seems to be the most popular brand here. 5. To make a Pimm's Royale, use champagne (or sparkling wine) in lieu of the lemonade. 6. Catering for kids, designated drivers and/or pregnant moms-to-be? Try making these with fig syrup instead of the Pimm's. In the south of France, they have a lovely non-alcoholic drink called a Gambetta, which is essentially just that.
