Pimms Cups: Limonta or Schweppe's Bitter Lemon?
_Really_ late to the party, but…..
Almost 30 years ago, when my sister and I went to BC to visit our father, we discovered the awesome combo of Pimm's & Bitter Lemon, a cocktail Dad unintentionally mixed because he'd mistakenly picked up a six-pack of Bitter Lemon rather than ginger ale.
My sister and I aren't drinkers, but, GollyBoyJeepers!!! We _loved_ that Pimm's & Bitter Lemon!
We named the drink after the place we first had it: Dad's boat, The Exocet.
The Exocet's amazingness has been augmented, we're sure, by its scarcity: Bitter Lemon was so hard to find in Toronto bars and shops back then, and is now impossible to find.
I've no tolerance for alcoholic drinks anymore, but I want to bake Pimm's, lemon juice and tonic water into a cake, in the style of a Harvey Wallbanger cake. Yum!
if you have not had a pimm's cup yourself, i would highly recommend sampling one beforehand to make sure you make the right soda pick.
i bought a bottle several years ago and could stand it with any type of lemon-lime soda. while searching for something to do with some wretched watermelon soda someone brought over, i found a match made in heaven.
