Mmmm Pimm's

During the summer I made more than a few Pimm's cocktails.  So refreshing and with fruit, so it's kinda like a meal.

Here are 3 ways to make it:

1. The Original Victorian Pimm’s: Use only Orange, Lemon, Cucumber and Mint. Make it stronger, do not dilute the Pimms more than one parts Pimm’s to two parts traditional lemonade.
2. The Classic Early 20th Century Pimm’s: Use only Strawberries, Orange, Cucumber and Mint, make it one part Pimm’s to three parts clear lemonade.

3. The Garden Party or Wedding Pimm’s: Use Strawberries, Orange, Apple, Lemon, Cucumber and Mint, make it one part Pimm’s, two parts clear Lemonade, and one part Ginger Beer (or Ginger Ale).


  1. Nice. I have to admit, I know nothing about alcohol, andi have no idea what Pimms tastes like, and even still, these recipes are Seriously tempting! I love all those fruity combos. Plus cucumbers!

  2. I'm with Amey, I have never tried Pimm's, but I want these cocktails!

  3. I love pimm's! I am a big fan of gin based drinks so Pimm's really hits the spot for me, love this post!
