Pimm’s - The basics
Pimm’s No.1 is a liqueur based on gin. The gin is infused with herbal botanicals, caramelized orange and delicate spices. It has a dark tea color with a reddish tint. The taste of Pimm’s No.1 has something of spices mixed with citrus.
The story about James Pimm and his Pimm’s cup can be found on the bottle. So I suggest you buy one if you want to find out.
At the moment there are also other types of Pimm’s available. The Pimm’s Winter Cup with a 'cinnamon meets caramel and zesty orange taste'. Also the Pimm’s Blackberry & Elderflower is now on the market. This is based on the Vodka cup with a combination of blackberries and elderflower.
The Pimm’s No. 1 cup – The English classic
The No 1 cup is today as popular as ever. This cocktail is a mixture of Pimm’s No.1, lemonade and freshly chopped ingredients such as cucumber, oranges, lemons, strawberries, apples and mint. The lemonade is also often replaced with ginger ale.
I often serve this to my friends in a slightly different version which I call the Pimm’s Punch. Pimm's can also be mixed with Champagne or a sparkling white wine. This is called the Pimm’s Royal Cup.
Pimm’s - More than only that cup
Of course the Pimm’s Cup is the perfect drink on a warm day. But there’s more that can be done with Pimm's than only the Pimm’s Cup or the Pimm’s Punch. Therefore i suggest you some other Pimm’s recipes which are not so famous... yet. Some of them are perfect for the summer time but also in winter time a Pimm’s drink can come to the rescue.
