Pimm’s Cup


This dark, gin-based liqueur has been a staple at cricket matches for ages, but has only recently become readily available in the states. Look for it at Whole Foods, BevMo, or most liquor stores.

1 cup ginger ale

2 cups sparkling lemon soda (such as san pellegrino limonata)

½ English cucumber, cut into 2-inch x ½-inch sticks, plus extra for garnish

1 medium orange, cut into large chunks or slices

8 strawberries, hulled and cut in half, plus extra for garnish

12 mint sprigs plus extra to garnish

1. Combine Pimm’s, ginger ale, lemon soda, cucumber sticks, orange slices, halved strawberries, and mint sprigs in a large pitcher.

2. Place in the fridge until chilled.

3. To serve, pour over ice-filled glasses and garnish each with extra cucumber sticks, a couple of strawberry halves, and a small sprig of mint.
