Pimm's, or more specifically Pimm's No. 1, is a gin based liquor proudly produced in Great Britain since 1840. Hence, it is only fitting that one of London's oldest gins became the drink at one of London's oldest matches.
I have found that there are many different varieties to making a Pimm's Cup. Some bartenders like to use sprite, some soda, some lemonade. I prefer the latter and like to keep it nice and simple:
2.5 ounces Pimm's No. 1
5 ounces of Lemonade
Highball packed with ice
Serving Size: 1 delicious, refreshing, and tasty beverage
1. Rinse your lemon, organic or not, it should always be rinsed. Then slice a wedge, or two.
2. Fill your highball with ice (note, I doubled the recipe to make drinks for two).
3. Add your 2.5 ounces of Pimm's No. 1 Gin. If you want to use a measuring cup to be exact, use just shy of about 1/4 cup and 1/8 cup.
