It’s Pimm’s time!

There is just no Summer drink more quintessentially British than Pimm’s. This gin-based spirit with herbal botanicals and spices is typically served with fizzy lemonade and garnished with fruit, cucumber and fresh mint. It’s intimately connected with the British Summer, especially at events like Ascot and Wimbledon.

Pimm’s No.1 was created in 1823 by James Pimm, a man who owned a London oyster bar and created a liqueur using gin, quinine and a secret mixture of herbs, as an aid to digestion, to serve his customers. The new Pimm’s drink was loved by the clientele, served in large vessels known as “cups’ at his establishment on Lombard Street.

Even if you’ve never been to England, liked tennis or had digestion issues, you definitely must try a sip of this refreshing fruity punch while enjoying the setting sun during the last days of Summer. The recipe is easy and quick, which gives you more time to kick back and enjoy the drink.
