good recipes with pimms?
any good drink recipes with pimms? just got a bottle as a gift from a friend. thanks!
OOOH! A Pimms Cup! A traditional drink served at Wimbledon, and really delish...sort of tastes like exotic Coke. Mix Pimms and fresh lemonade and sprite/7Up, pour in a tall glass over ice and add a skewer of cucumber as a stirrer.
Supposedly you can also pour some champagne over Pimms for the luxe version of a Pimms Cup.
If it's Pimm's Cup No. 1, we used to mix it with 7-Up or very dry ginger ale, hit it with a squirt of lime, use a nice cucumber spear as a stirrer, and pour it over ice. Great summertime drink.
We tried the other 3, as I recall, and none were quite as enjoyable as No.1. That, however, was a long time ago.
You're going to like it, I bet. It's a really nice drink. Enjoy!
My preferred version is ginger ale, pimms, and lemon. Taste like iced tea. Much more botanical with the tradional cuke. I've seen pimms fruit cups at a bar in New York, Employees only, I think. They added lemons, orage, lime, cuke and others to pimms no.1.
I believe the other pimms are all defunct except for no. 3. I believe there were 6 of them, the main difference being the base spirit. No. 1 is gin, there were rum, whiskey, scotch, vodka, etc.
