Pimm’s is an interesting liqueur if you’ve never had it before. It’s essentially an English Amaro, with gin as it’s base spirit. It’s a touch bitter, a little sweet, and sort of herbal, earthy and gritty. There have been as many as 6 varieties of Pimm’s over the years, but the original “No. 1 Cup” is the one that has stuck.
Here’s how you make the simple and refreshing Pimm’s Cup Cocktail:
- in a highball glass filled with ice, add:
- 1 1/2 oz Pimm’s No. 1
- top with ginger ale (or lemon-lime soda)
- garnish with cucumber
- serve with a straw
