pimm's


here's a quick cocktail to get your holiday weekend started off just right! pimm's no. 1 cup is a gin based liqueur and the drink of choice if you're headed to any polo matches this summer. we love the pimm's cup so much it was one of the signature drinks at our wedding! there are several different versions - some with lemonade, some with sliced apple, some with mint or basil, and they're all equally delicious but this is our favorite right now. have a wonderful & safe memorial day weekend!

So refreshing! With all that fruit, I may forget there's alcohol in it and get myself in a wee bit o' trouble.

But I'll give it a whirl anyway:)

Mm, reminds me of NOLA. Such a refreshing drink. I like to add a splash of lemonade to mine as well.

i became a huge fan of pimm's while living in the uk a few years back. my favorite way to have it is with sparkling lemondae, strawberries and green grapes. delish and so refreshing!
