Pimm's Cup is how the Brits beat the heat while watching Wimbledon each summer. Its a refreshing combination of sliced fruit, cucumber, and Pimm's No. 1, a spicy and herbal gin based liqueur. Because its fairly low in alcohol, its a perfect cocktail to drink while sitting in the sun watching tennis or any summer sporting event.
Pimm's Cup (recipe adapted from Zara Findlay-Shirras)
Combine Pimm's No. 1 liqueur with sliced strawberries, lemon, and cucumber in a large container and allow the flavors to marry a while. Ladle a cups worth of the mixture into a glass with some ice and top off with lemon soda (Sprite or Pellegrino Limonata) and a sprig of fresh mint. If your favored player is losing add gin.
