Pimms is a famous “English Style” cocktail which is often enjoyed in summer either at the rowing or tennis. Served in various ways, Pimms itself is a gin-based fruit cup.
Here is our take on the traditional Pimms Style cocktail. Served as a mocktail (alcohol free) our cocktail is full of fruit, cucumber and ice to keep you fresh and hydrated this summer.
5 x large wedges of cucumber
5 x strawberries sliced
1 x orange sliced
A few sprigs of mint
Large jug or pitcher
In the jug or pitcher layer the ice, cucumber, strawberries, oranges and mint until ½ full.
Add 50/50 lemonade and ginger ale
Use a large spoon to mix
Serve in large chilled glasses and enjoy
Not everyone likes things as sweet, you can adjust with 50% ginger ale, 25% lemonade and 25% soda water
Feel free to use other berry fruits
If you’re very organised you could freeze some strawberries in to the ice
Let sit for 5 minutes before serving to infuse
Crush a bit of mint before putting in the mocktail to get as much of the mint flavour out as possible
