How to make ...

Pimms and Lemonade

The ultimate summer cup, Pimms and Lemonade is a british summertime staple, the unique, fruity liqueur is mixed with lemonade, fresh fruit and sometimes a splash of gin, to make a refreshing and moreish long drink, perfect for a warm, sunny evening.

Method

Take your highball glass or jug and, using your jigger to measure add the Pimms to the glass or jug, remembering to alter quantities according to the number of desired servings.

Add a selection of chopped fruits and mint leaves to the glass or jug. Any fruit will do, but we recommend a combination of cucumber, strawberries, apples, lemons and mint.

Fill the rest of your glass or jug with cubed Ice and top up with lemonade.

Using your bar spoon, give the drink a quick stir to combine the ingredients and incorporate the ice.

Garnish each glass with a mint sprig and, if serving from a jug, make sure to include some of the fruit as well.

Serve and enjoy!

History

In the 1840’s James Pimms’ invented Pimms whilst working in the financial district. Not invented as an alcoholic drink but more of a tonic for health benefits. He began selling it at his oyster bar near the Bank of England.

The ‘Cups’ refer specifically to the base of the liquor. Pimms No1 is gin, no2 is scotch, no3 is brandy, no4 is rum, no5 is rye whiskey and no6 is vodka. Wimbledon always causes a massive rise in the consumption of pimms, with an estimated 40,000 pints being drunk over the course of the tournament.

Pimms and Lemonade is a longstanding feature of any British summer party or barbecue, for good reason, this quintessentially English tipple is a fruity favourite, perfect for quenching thirsts or killing time during surprise thunderstorms.

Pimms is a great choice for an afternoon bar-hire, if you’re looking for low ABV, daytime drinks that can be served quickly and easily there really is no better option. The classic ‘Pimms Cup’ recipe features a dash of gin as well the eponymous liqueur which gives and added dryness and kick to the fruity cocktail, let your event organiser know whether you want this stronger version or the lighter, Pimms only option.

This fruity summer-punch is a sort of English answer to the aperitivo—a low-alcohol cocktail, designed to be drunk in the afternoon and early evening as a mellow way to start off an evening or cap off a long day. Some other aperitivo cocktails that may go well alongside Pimms and Lemonade include the ever-popular Aperol Spritz or the classy forebear to the Negroni, the Americano.
